You don’t have to go down into the woods today to find a Teddy Bears Picnic – as some interesting little characters have taken up residence in the Cards for Good Causes shop in Antelope Walk Dorchester, which will re-open on 2 December.
During lockdown when all home visiting services were suspended, the RVS Home Library Service volunteers kept in touch with their clients on the phone. And to keep everybody engaged and busy came up with the idea of a Knitted Teddy Bears’ Picnic. They called on all crafters stuck at home to make bears, picnic food and blankets – no limit to the imagination. This was advertised county wide in March, and items have flooded in.
If anybody has made bears or other items and held onto to them until now, could they get in touch on 01305 236666 or e-mail email@example.com to arrange a pick up.
The Home Library Service was suspended in March due to the Coronavirus situation, but they are now again offering a doorstep delivery service of books – strictly non-contact and following all safety guidance.
For information regarding the Knitted Teddy Bears’ Picnic or the Home Library Service/Doorstep Delivery Service contact Maria Jacobson, service manager, on 01305 236666 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
