In this centenary year of the Women’s Institute, the new Haywards Heath branch have been spending many hours knitting 100 Teddy Bears that were presented to the Lions Club of Haywards Heath on October 27 at Haywards Heath Town Hall.
The Lions have collected bears from various sources over the years to be given to the Princess Royal Hospital to bring comfort to children and some adults who find themselves admitted unexpectedly to A&E. Our picture shows some of the 100 bears handed over to the Lions as Lion Bryan Barnes cuts a celebratory cake with WI President Chris Newton. A big thank you to the Women’s Institute!
