Teddies for Loving Care

Freemasons in Northumberland raise money to provide cuddly toys to Accident and Emergency Units in Hospitals across the United Kingdom.  When a child is admitted into hospital they are often distressed, and a cuddy toy can help to ease their trauma.

The Teddy helps to distract the child while giving them a friend and someone to hug, while allowing the medical staff to get on with their urgent work.
