The Teddies for Loving Care Appeal is Launched at Ysbyty Gwynedd

We were met by Tristam Lewis (Hospital Administrator) and Lynne Roberts (Senior Nurse A & E) who are pictured with RW Bro. Ieuan Redvers Jones launching the Appeal. Also present was our patient for the afternoon Leah Rowlands of Bodorgan, whose mother Gwenno is nurse at A & E.

Teddies for Loving Care in action

Leah is pictured with the Teddies which will be given to children under 7 years at the discretion of the Nursing Staff who are admitted in an emergency. As an appreciation of her help and allowing the Province to use her pictures for publicity she was presented with one of the large teddies by RW Bro Ieuan Redvers Jones.

Teddies for Loving Care Large Teddy

In a conversation with RW Bro. Ieuan Redvers Jones during the afternoon Lynne Roberts mentioned that on the previous Saturday a little boy had been admitted to A&E who had been badly burned by putting his hands on a kitchen hob. The boy was severely distressed and Lynne had given the little boy one of the Teddies to comfort him. She commented that "it certainly did the trick, I hope that you didn´t mind me giving him the Teddy before the launch". We were delighted to hear that the Teddies were already being put to good use.

Teddies for Loving Care - More Teddies

 Freemasonry benefits both the Local & National Community 

Freemasons make a major contribution to society through their own charities, as well as through donations to UK charities and worldwide disaster relief funds, with members playing an active role in their communities.





Freemasonry is more relevant and important to society today than ever!
