Teddy bears offer home comfort to Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance children
7:00am Sunday 13th October 2013 in News
CHILDREN who are flown in the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance can now cuddle teddy bears thanks to a donation from the Wessex Group.
The charity says teddies help reassure children who may need to use the services of the air ambulance and they get to keep them afterwards.
Mike Wood, managing director of Wessex Building Services, and Jackie Baker who is chairman of Wessex Group’s sports and social club, handed over the 50 teddies to air ambulance staff.
Annette Plaistow-Trapaud, fundraising co-ordinator for the air ambulance, said: “Being flown by air ambulance can sometimes be an anxious time for children and cuddling a bear can really help them. It’s a lovely gesture from the Wessex Group and I am sure the children will love them.”
