The ladies from Coxhoe Casual Crafts who meet in the Village Hall on a Friday morning do quite a lot of Charity knitting, crocheting and sewing be it Linus quilts, hats for premature babies, Poppies or making goods for our local Methodist Chapel Fayre.
One of their members, Ann Taylor, brought in our latest project “Trauma Teddies”. She has been making them for a number of years for different organisations. We thought Darlington and Durham Fire Service was a worthy cause to give to. They are given to children involved in incidents to comfort them in times of trouble. Up to now they have received 80 and came out to see our ladies with a box of biscuits. They have also donated 50 to Treetops Ward at UHND we received a note to say parents and children were thrilled to be able to take them home
