TLC charity raise funds for the supply of cuddly toys to A&E units for children in severe distress.
The TLC Appeal originated after an allergic reaction suddenly caused the swelling and blocking of the windpipe of the wife of a Freemason. Her life was saved by the rapid action of the medical staff at an A&E unit, who were able to resuscitate and stabilise her. They are both eternally grateful for the swift and caring attention that she received, but found the experience the most frightening of their lives and speculated on the distress that children must face when visiting A&E units.
The idea of doing something useful for medical staff at A&E units was discussed, and from that point the compulsive idea of “Teddies for Loving Care” was born. The Appeal was launched in Essex in 2001. Thankfully, after 12 years, that support and enthusiasm for the Appeal still exists and well over 1,000,000 teddies have now been distributed nationwide. Most of the money raised to fund the Appeal comes from Freemasons themselves, but also receive some donations from grateful individuals and the sale of TLC merchandise e.g. other teddies (not the ones supplied to hospitals) and lapel pins.
TLC are proud to announce that more than ONE MILLION TLC TEDDIES have now been distributed.
On 8th October I am going to run the Chester Marathon to help raise funds to donate to this wonderful charity. I would be very grateful for any donations no matter how small. Thank you
