Atherton Lions Club Teddy Bear Program

The Lions Club of Atherton has added a new project to its portfolio – Lions Trauma Bears, or Care Bears as they are sometimes called.

These cuddly little characters may be small, but they do a big job in calming those in distress, whether that person be a child or an adult.

Purchased through Lions Clubs of Victoria’s Crimewatch Speak Up Program, the bears have been donated by the Lions Club of Atherton to Queensland Ambulance Service (paramedics) to be available in all nineteen ambulances across the Southern Tablelands; Atherton Hospital emergency and trauma wards; Carinya Home for the Aged; the Atherton Police; as well as several community organisations.

Atherton Trauma Teddies Coordinator Glyn Ford has been overwhelmed with the positive reaction to the bears by the region’s emergency service personnel, who have found the bears to be a valuable resource in trauma situations.
