Teddy Bears and Soft Toys for Syria

The parishes in the diocese were wonderful in helping achieve the target of sending 10,000 teddies to the children of war torn Syria in June and in fact with everyone’s help, we actually sent 12,500 teddies!

The response from the Syria relief agency who distributed the teddies on our behalf once they arrived have sent amazing feedback together with photos of the children receiving their teddies and apparently, the consignment was such a success and made such a difference to the lives of the children that they have asked if we can send more.

Bags/boxes of toys can be taken either to the Holy Trinity Church Team Office, Whitecross Road, Hereford between the hours of 10am and 12am Monday to Friday or to Ludlow Diocesan Office during normal office hours (for those parishes in the northern part of the diocese).
