TEDDIES for LOVING CARE was started by Freemasons and so far over 2.5 million bears have been given to distressed children in Accident & Emergency units in hospitals across England & Wales. Teddy bears are everyone’s favourite soft toy. In Oxfordshire Freemasons supply A&Es and Minor Injury Units to help nursing staff calm down a child, or use the bear to show how a plaster or bandage would be applied.

The Bears supplied to hospitals come in 6 different colours, so a child can choose their own to keep. All bears meet Health & Safety Regulations.


The success of this project relies on a small team of dedicated volunteers who liaise with the hospitals to ensure they have a great stock of bears which are purchased by the Oxfordshire Masonic Charity (OMC). The OMC will be grateful for any donations, large or small, to allow us to continue to supply these fantastic bears and comfort children in distress.


 We have so far donated over 15,000 bears within Oxfordshire, receiving some fantastic messages of thanks from staff, parents and children alike, so please support us to maintain the wonderful TLC project.
