More generous donations of trauma teddies have been received thanks to our force chaplain Steve Edge and the Seaton Park knitting and medical group.

These bears are handed out when our officers respond to calls for service where children are present. Whether they are a missing person or involved in a road traffic accident.

This comes after a kind hearted member of the public handed a bagful of the bears into the front desk at Washington Police Station on Monday.

We have had a couple of heartwarming stories already from officers working on the shift so thank you to everyone who has donated bears to the scheme.

If you are interested in getting involved then please send Becky Childs (pictured far left) an email at Victims First Northumbria.

She has been co-ordinating the scheme along with Sgt Mick Hood (also pictured) and can be contacted on
