Hi, I’m Raydon, I come from a Youth hostel near Thirlmere in the Lake District. I was made by the mother of the warden of the hostel. Me and my brothers and sisters were bought by visitors to the hostel as souvenirs and to raise funds for the hostel. Each of us had ‘Ray’ in our names because that was the wardens name. I was named ‘Raydon’ by my new owner because she was interested in physics and was reading a book about Marie Curie and Radium. She thought because I was bright red I looked like I was glowing!
I mainly sit in the bedroom, gathering dust, but she dusted me down and took a photo of me. I hope she still loves me.
