Trauma teddies need creators

WOOLGOOLGA Red Cross Branch is calling on volunteers to assist with the Trauma Teddy program.

The special bears are knitted by volunteers and given to children and adults who are experiencing trauma in their lives.

Volunteers are needed to donate wool and knit, sew and label the bears.

The branch would love to hear from any willing and able knitters who can assist.

The Red Cross will provide knitters with patterns and filling.

The teddies are a special gift from the Red Cross and its volunteers to those in need and are not for sale.

Some of the services that receive the teddies include doctor and dental surgeries, ambulances and the local Coffs Harbour Health Campus Children's Ward.

Beanies and squeeze balls are also knitted and donated to the hospital.

The Woolgoolga Red Cross Branch cannot continue the Trauma Teddy program without the help of volunteers.

For more information or to get involved, phone Woolgoolga branch co-ordinator Jean Vickery on 6656 2483 or 0427 791 628.

The branch would also like to thank its members and the volunteers who have already made the program a success.
