I completely stole this from the blog of a friend of a friend….
The local police force are looking for knitters to help with knitting trauma bears. Trauma bears are used in cases of child abuse, be it mental or physical, in order to provide the child with a companion throughout and after their involvement with an investigation.
How nice to think that the police are using a teddy to help a child feel like they might have a new friend.
I shall do my best to knit a couple of bears. The pattern has been requested, knitting needles at the ready……..
