Durham TLC offers a little comfort to hardworking NHS staff

Teddies for Loving Care and Durham Freemasons marked NHS Frontline Workers’ day by providing a hot drink and a chocolate bar. The small token of gratitude was given to NHS staff who have worked closely with them over the years, particularly during the pandemic.

TLC Durham visited North Tees University Hospital, South Tyneside Hospital and the University Hospital of North Durham with the welcome treats.

Throughout the pandemic children have been arriving at Urgent Care and A & E in a very distressed state. The medical professionals have continued to care for them and Durham TLC are only too pleased that the little teddies have also played their part.

TLC coordinator, Duncan Maw, said:

Those little gifts of kindness from Durham Freemason’s were appreciated by the staff, patients and parents and we’re only too glad to have been able to help.  We just wanted to celebrate the NHS, Social Care and Frontline Workers and say thank you to all those who have worked so hard throughout the pandemic, putting our Teddies to good use and bringing smiles to little faces!
