Thornton Le Dale WI go 'All Bear' - Trauma Teddies

During lockdown, the ladies of Thornton le Dale WI have been busy knitting Trauma Teddies. Over sixty teddies have been lovingly knitted and decorated by some of our members. One of our members is a Health Visitor who has been making visits to Arden House, in Pickering and encouraged some of the residents there to become involved in the knitting as well.

The teddies are being donated to the local First Responders and Paramedics, to give to children who have been involved in an accident or other trauma which they attend.
