Teddy Trauma Transfer: Durdham Downs 19th September 2020

Members of SI Bristol met on Durdham Downs on Saturday, ensuring social distancing, to say good bye to some of our Trauma Teddies.

President Marion welcomed the Lord Lieutenant of the City and County of Bristol Peaches Golding and the Lord Mayor of Bristol Jos Clark who both gave talks about the event.

Three hundred (of our 900) teddy bears, knitted by members of SI Bristol, family, Regional members and friends, were given to representatives from the Air Ambulance, the Fire Brigade and the Police.

The representatives expressed their appreciation. The 100 bears given to each emergency service was another way we marked SI Bristol’s centenary.  The soroptimists present were delighted to know the teddy bears will help to comfort children.
