The TLC teddies that Freemasons purchase are given to the A & E dept of a Districts local hospital. Those pictured are at North Manchester General hospital. The hospital may receive around 600 of the small coloured teddies every year to give to injured and poorly children who attend A&E.  The happiness these small toys bring and the calming effect they have on frightened children is a joy to see.




The money to buy these teddies is raised by selling the larger teddies (these are the ones at the end), along with lapel pins, key rings etc and the ELMC makes a grant available for those districts that may need additional funding. The generosity of the East Lancashire Masons is vital if we are to continue with this worthwhile cause so please support us as often as you can.
