The TLC teddies that Salford Freemasons purchase are given to North Manchester General Hospital in Crumpsall. On average the hospital receives around 600 of the small coloured teddies every year to give to injured and poorly children who attend A&E. The happiness these small toys bring and the calming effect they have on frightened children is a joy to see.
The money to buy these teddies is raised by selling the larger teddies (these are the ones at the end), along with lapel pins, key rings etc. The generosity of the Salford Masons is vital if we are to continue with this worthwhile cause so please support us as often as you can.
