More Trauma Teddies find new home where they will be very happy comforting children
Teddies, 50 in total, were delivered to Next Link a charity providing domestic abuse support and Missing Link a charity providing a range of housing and support for women who have either acute or long term mental health needs. These little bears will be treasured as so often mothers and children have none of their possessions especially toys.
Another 50 teddies were delivered to Above and Beyond the local charity supporting Bristol city centre hospitals and other services. This includes The Bridge helping people who have been raped and sexual assaulted including children. In 2013/14 The Bridge was our Club Charity for the year. Prior to that we also sponsored a 4 year old girl who needed their counselling services, at that time the NHS did not fund counselling for children at The Bridge.
We have had close links to both of these charities over the years and know that these little bears will go to good homes.
