Teddies for Tragedies
Doctors in Third World countries have found that children who have their own teddies to cuddle get better more quickly than those who do not. Each child takes their teddy home, so there is a need for a continual supply.
Here is a link to Teddies for Tragedies website so you can read all about it-
Below you will find full knitting instructions for making a “Teddies for Tragedies” teddy. It is important to follow these instructions as the organisers want all the teddies donated to have a similar appearance.
Please use bright colours, but NOT white, as white is a sign of mourning in many countries.
When you have made some teddies please bring them to a meeting of Merseyside Embroiderers Guild where Vicky Williams will deliver them to a collector in Liverpool Anglican Cathedral.
