Teddies turn 30!

A small group of members of the Friends of Red Cross Castlemaine gathered at Run Rabbit Run recently to celebrate the iconic Red Cross ‘Trauma Teddies’ – the bears who care – which are turning 30 on November 23!
Friends of Red Cross Castlemaine spokesperson Sue Tribe said Trauma Teddies are a special non-funded program that relies on the generosity of volunteers.
The local gathering aimed to celebrate the efforts of two of the group’s dedicated local knitters Lorna Anstey and Beryl Mein and Trauma Teddies coordinator Margaret Boyle.
