The next 72 young children who find themselves in need of emergency services are assured of some comfort at hand, thanks to the Deniliquin Lions Club. Local Lions have purchased two boxes of Trauma Teddies to be distributed to any child needing assistance from Deniliquin police or paramedics.

A box of bears was donated to each on Thursday morning by Lions members, including Phyllis Carroll who raised the charity idea with her fellow Lions earlier this year.

‘‘This follows on from an informal teddy bear donation program we had, and we thought it was a good idea to do something more,’’ Lions president Daryl Whateley said.
