Director Andy Kelleher and Videographer Damianio Petrucci of Kartoffel Films based in London arrived at the University Hospital of North Tees to produce a video on behalf of the MCF, showing the wonderful work being done by the TLC throughout Country. There are 48 local ‘Teddies for Loving Care’ (TLC) charities/initiatives across England and Wales that provide small teddies to their local A&E departments. In addition some TLC charities also donate a portion of their funds towards teddies for minor injuries units, children’s wards, hospices and women’s refuge centres. There are even teddies flying on air ambulances.
The Masonic Charitable Foundation ( mcf.org.uk ) are producing on behalf of ‘Teddies for Loving Care’, a short video that celebrates the initiative, the people that run it and the medical professionals that use the bears day-to-day. The TLC video will offer an insight into what the TLC charities do and their impact on their local communities. Durham TLC along with another Province will appear in the production and it will be featured on this site as soon as it is available.
Duncan Maw and Mark Davies were present representing Durham TLC, along with Helen Bainbridge, the Programme and Engagement Manager of the MCF, who briefed the film crew as to the content required. Many thanks to the hospital staff who went out of their way to assist. We all look forward to the finished product.
Together we are making a difference
