Many thanks to Medway and Maidstone Club and Sevenoaks Club for their knitting experts who
have created a sackful of knitted Teddy Bears beyond their own projects.
These were originally requested by emergency services to comfort children in trauma situations
including children in Ukraine and arriving as refugees.
The idea was then taken up by East Grinstead Club to offer similar reassurance for children arriving
at the “We choose Freedom “ Women’s Refuge, which the East Grinstead Club supports, and the
call for Teddies has produced a South East England 3 Club collaboration.
All our participants feel this has been a very worthwhile extension
