Teddies for Loving Care provides cuddly bears to Accident and Emergency units for medical staff to give, at their discretion, to young children. The bears are often used by staff to calm children down, reward them for being brave and in some cases demonstrate procedures. All children who receive a bear get to take it home.
TLC is a national programme locally-led by freemasons across England and Wales. The support and enthusiasm for the initiative has meant that over 2 million teddies have now been distributed nationwide. Most of the money raised comes from freemasons themselves through Lodge donations and fundraising but TLC also receives generous donations from individuals who support the programme.
We are proud to announce that more than ONE MILLION TLC TEDDIES have now been distributed.Without the support of you all this would not have been possible.
