Teddy Bears are not really recognised as life savers, but a donation to the Parkes Ambulance Service could potentially make a huge difference to children. Currajong Disability Services, with the help of St. Vincent De Paul, recently donated hand-made teddy bears to Parkes Ambulance Services. The teddy bears will not only serve as a comfort to children but could potentially be a vital life-saving tool. Parkes Ambulance Service Station Officer Geoff Lovegrove said: “Teddy bears are helpful when we need children, who are injured or scared, to point to us on the teddy where they feel pain,” Geoff said. St. Vincent De Paul donated the teddies to the Currajong Sewing Group who repaired them.
