The objective of TLC is to provide Teddy bears to Paediatric Emergency Departments, for the medical staff to give, at their discretion, to children admitted who are in severe distress and where the staff feel that a soft Teddy to cuddle will help alleviate the stress and assist them in their work.
TLC Appeal distributes the Teddy bears to 16 Accident & Emergency departments across Ireland.
Since its start in Ireland in 2013 80,000 Teddy Bears have been distributed through out the country.
As part of the annual fundraising, a Treasure Hunt and Teddy Bears Picnic is planned for Sunday the 29th May next. The treasure hunt is starting from Old Wesley Rugby Club, Ballycorus Rd, Kilternan, first car away at 11am.
There will be some very nice classic cars taking part on the day but the event is open to cars of all types and years. It will be a perfect day out for all the family with a free BBQ and Ice cream van for all participants.
The course is over 40km long through some very scenic parts of Wicklow and will be in the form of a Tulip type diagram with questions asked to tie in with points on the navigation route. The winner will be the car with the most correct answers and there are some very attractive prizes. All maps are provided and no special navigation aids or skills are required.
The very reasonable entry fee is €50 per car with no limit to the number of people per vehicle, which will include a BBQ and ice cream from our very own Teddy Bear ice cream van. Every cent raised goes straight to the Charity T.L.C. Appeal.
