DOZENS of teddies have been delivered to a health centre to help cheer up young patients.

Freemasons from the St Pega Lodge in Deeping St James delivered about 70 bears to Deepings Health Centre.

They hope the bears will be used to comfort young children who are nervous about visiting the doctor and being treated at the centre.

Charity steward Graham Cox said: “Masons have made deliveries of teddies in various parts of the country and we were keen to do the same here.

“The teddies can be used to settle children if they are in distress when they get to the centre and they might even be bandaged up so show children who have broken bones what will happen to them.

“We make a lot of donations to local charities and hope these teddies will be well used by local children.”
