CHANGED VENTURE FOR TEDDY DAYS STARTING FEBRUARY 2019

 Teddy Day in February will be on 14th, and this will be the first workshop held at their new venue of the TS&BC. For details speak to Secretary Joan. Meet at the foyer of the Toongabbie Sports & Bowling Club at 10.00am.  

 

We have a group of members who meet on the second Thursday each month at 10.00am to finish off the little teddy bears that have been knitted by members.  The finished teddies are then donated to the Westmead Children's Hospital to give to children who have suffered trauma from accidents or illness.  The group have been going for over 15 years and have completed an amazing 13,000 plus bears.  Members are welcome to join in this worthwhile activity.  For those who can't knit, bears need faces, seams sown up, ears put on & filling.  At the moment we need more knitters!

MAKING A GRAND TOTAL SINCE THE BEGINNING OF 13,500

More knitters are wanted to knit the little bears at home in their spare time.  The ladies are now supplying teddies to not only the Westmead Children’s Hospital, but also the Police Dept. to help children who are traumatized by accident, domestic violence etc.
