WI members knit trauma teddies for youngsters
Members of Earls Colne WI presented Essex Police with 61 hand-made trauma teddies after they took part in a knitathon challenge.
The brightly coloured bears, which are used as a gift for children who have experienced trauma, were presented to Pcsos Gemma Cheek and Terrie Johnson.
Pcso Johnson said: “We are very grateful to members of Earls Colne WI for giving up their time to make us so many of these fantastic teddies. I hope that these will bring a little bit of cheer to a child in need.”
