Teddies For Loving Care Surrey

Helping Children in hospitals since 2001 with over 2.5 million teddies distributed!


How did Teddies For Loving Care (TLC) start?

Teddies For Loving Care was started by a group of Essex Freemasons as a community initiative to provide some comfort to distressed children in hospitals – particularly those arriving in the A and E departments.

Since 2001 over 2.5 million teddies (and counting!) have been distributed to hospitals around the UK. The success of TLC has also spread to many other Masonic Provinces and Grand Lodges around the world.

Each teddy carries a tag “Donated by local Freemasons”. This simple gesture conveys a message to the public that Freemasons are active in their respective communities.

Teddies For Loving Care in Surrey

Teddies for Loving Care was adopted by Surrey Freemasons in February 2003. East Surrey Hospital, Redhill was the first Surrey hospital to pilot the scheme.

When it launched they had 12 bears which lasted 2 weeks. Now, 10 hospitals later, each unit receives 48 bears per week!

The Provincial Grand Lodge of Surrey and private lodges support the initiative by raising much need funds to continue the good cause by way of donations from lodge funds and individual donations.
