‘Tis the season for giving and that’s just what the Barrier Reef Lions club did when they visited the Cairns Police Station today. Staff at the Crime Prevention Unit were extremely happy to take delivery of two boxes of bears generously donated by members of the Barrier Reef Lions.

Club member Jo Lynes arranged the delivery and said the Lions Club is more than happy to replenish stocks when they get low. Police deal with a variety of traumatic situations, sadly many of those involve children. The cuddly bears will be used by officers to give out to children with the aim of hopefully providing some relief in situations that they may find themselves involved in.

Members of the Barrier Reef Lions Club and their wonderful donation of cuddly bears for children in need. 

Police deal with a variety of traumatic situations, sadly many of those involve children. The cuddly bears will be used by officers to give out to children with the aim of hopefully providing some relief in situations that they may find themselves involved in. The Cairns Police sincerely thank president Ian and his team of volunteers from the Barrier Reef Lions Club for their generous donation and for including the Cairns Police Station in ‘Operation Teddy Bear.’
