Lions donate trauma teddies
Woy Woy Lions Club have donated 72 trauma teddies to local Clare NSW Ambulance Service and Umina Beach and Ocean Beach Surf Life Saving Clubs to be handed out to young children and adults they encounter in their day to day duties.
"The teddies will be handed out in trauma incidents including accidents and familyviolence situations, when people just need something to cuddle," said Woy Woy Lions Club president Mr Ian Taylor.
"What better than a soft Lions Teddy?
"Our club will continue to monitor the stock each group is holding and will replenish stock as required.
"We are also working closely with other clubs on the Central Coast to see if we can expand this project beyond the Peninsula.
"A couple of our members are in discussions with the various women and children refuges on the Coast to see how we can introduce them to the world of Lions Trauma Teddies," he said.
