EIGHTY tiny, knitted creatures that give comfort to many little ones will be handed over to Tamworth hospital and Ronald McDonald House this week.
A group of ladies from Easy Living Villas came upon a pattern for trauma teddies and before too long they had themselves a fair dinkum teddy bear-making production line.
“We get together each Wednesday morning in the communal hall in the village,” Peggy Holzigal said.
“We have a few friends from outside the village who come along each week, too. One of them had a sample pattern and asked if, as a group, we wanted to do something with them.
“We took the sample and a friend from Moree gave us a lot of wool, and we bought some, too, and it just went from there.
“We’re all retired and have some time on our hands, but it’s just lovely to do something to help people.”
