    The weather may have been drizzly but it didn’t dampen spirits at our Teddy Bears' Picnic.

    Thanks to funding by Medway Commissioners, the care team at our Sittingbourne hospice Demelza Kent hosted a fun-filled teddy bear-themed day for families on Tuesday 2 August.

    Children and siblings decorated maracas, painted teddy bears, went on a bear hunt, sang along with musician Andrew Tye from charity Music in Hospitals and watched Paddington Bear with their furry friends.

    Debbie McSwiney, Care Services Lead at Demelza Kent, said: “The Teddy Bears’ Picnic was absolutely wonderful and the families really enjoyed all of the activities. We’re very grateful to Medway Commissioners for making this special day possible.”
