Teddy bear donation

05 August 2021

Four people, two women wearing childrens nurses' patterned tunics, a doctor in blue scrubs and a man in a light colour top and dark trousers, each hold a teddy bear. They stand in front of a wall with a jungle pattern on it, in the children's area of our emergency department 

Suffolk Freemasons have generously donated a number of teddy bears to our children’s A&E department as part of their TLC (Teddies for Loving Care) appeal.

The Freemasons Provincial Grand Lodge of Suffolk have been raising money to buy teddy bears for children arriving in A&E in stress or trauma and this has resulted in hundreds of bears being donated to our team over the years for us to pass on to our younger patients who may be in need of a friend during their hospital visit.

More bears arrived recently and we’d like to say a big thank you to everyone involved in raising funds for this thoughtful donation, which we hope will continue to bring smiles to the faces of some of the young patients who have to come into our Emergency Department.
