Bears for Bramble from the Devonshire Freemasons

 

Bears for brambleDozens of teddy bears have been donated to the children’s ward at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital by the Devonshire Freemasons to help brighten up their stay in hospital.


The Freemasons regularly donate teddies to Bramble Ward through their Devonshire Teddy for Loving Care (TLC) campaign. Over the last six years the campaign has seen approximately 28,500 teddy bears donated to the four major hospitals, children’s hospices and the crown courts in Devon.


W.Bro. John Adcock, the Devon Coordinator for the Teddies for Loving Care from the Devonshire Freemasons, recently visited the ward to hand over the teddies.


“One teddy bear can give so much enjoyment to a child.” said John. “The doctors and nurses think it’s wonderful, and as long as the children are happy then we’re happy too!”

 
Bramble Play Specialist Cara Bennett said: “We’d like to say a big thank you to the Devonshire Freemasons for their kind donation of teddy bears again this year. The teddies really help put a smile on the children’s faces and it really is a lovely gesture.”
