Lions lend a stitching hand

Members of Dereham Lions have been busy stitching uniforms for teddy bears which are given to youngsters involved in traumatic events.
Pam Goldsmith, club president and Janet Spauls have used newly learnt sewing skills to create uniforms for PC Teds, teddy bears which are used by police officers to help comfort children who may be in distress following an accident or traumatic event.
Creating uniforms for dozens of toys, the bears will be sent to Norfolk Police’s headquarters in Wymondham before going out on the road with officers.
Now the pair are encouraging others to lend a stitching hand and help make uniforms for even more PC Teds.
Anyone who would like to help, or who is interested in finding out more about the Lions, should contact the group by calling 0845 8337363, emailing, firstname.lastname@example.org or by sending a message through the club’s website: www.derehamlions.org.uk or on facebook, Dereham Lions Club.
