The knitted arms of the law

Evesham Editorial 1st Oct, 2022   0

A FLADBURY community project to craft toys for children affected by crime has received support from West Mercia’s Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC)

Dozens of ‘trauma teddies’ have been knitted by the Fladbury Knit and Natter group in Pershore to provide comfort and support to children who are going through traumatic and distressing events.

The soft teddies are handed out to young children who meet officers from West Mercia Police.

Assistant Police and Crime Commissioner Paul Middlebrough visited the group to see the teddies first hand and thank the group for their hard work and kindness.




PCC John Campion said: “I’m extremely grateful to all the generous individuals from Fladbury Knit and Natter who take time out of their week to support our local police and community.

“The toys will be a comfort to some of the most vulnerable children in West Mercia’s criminal justice system, who are bewildered and frightened by the situation they find themselves in, through no fault of their own.”
