East Ribble District Freemasons are proud to be able to continue their support for the Teddies For Loving Care campaign.

This nationwide initiative by the Freemasons has now delivered more than 3 million teddies since 2001 to children in distress and in need of comfort.

The District has provided over 850 teddies over the last twelve months to Blackburn and Burnley Hospitals Children’s Departments.

The teddies are used by the staff to calm children down, reward them for being brave, and, in some cases, demonstrate procedures.

Pictured are Malcolm Roe, East Ribble District Charity Steward, delivering the latest batch of teddies to the staff at The Children’s Day Case Unit at Burnley General Teaching Hospital.
