Lilian’s teddies

During lockdown, Arcare Knox The Lodge resident, Lilian has been busy knitting teddy bears for Syrian children.

While Lilian knits the body of bears, the teddy bears are really a community effort. Lilian’s daughter helps to sew the heads on, and several local school children help to stuff the bears.

91 year old Lilian is now knitting her 57th teddy bear for the children of Syria.

“I enjoy helping my daughter to make clothes and toys to send to the children of Syria. It’s good to know that we are making a difference.” Lilian said.
