Beda is proud to support the TLC initiative which provides cuddly bears to Accident and Emergency units for medical staff to give, at their discretion, to young children. The bears are often used by staff to calm children down, reward them for being brave and in some cases demonstrate procedures. All children who receive a bear get to take it home. Beda helps Santa deliver teddies and selection boxes to the A&E departments and both Bedford and Luton and Dunstable Hospitals at Christmas, and assist the Bunny to deliver eggs at Easter.
Pictured are the Beda boys and girls with hospital staff on 21st December 2019 at Bedford A&E hand over the latest batch of selection boxes.
