THE Chron­i­cle reached out to its read­ers and asked for sup­port by do­nat­ing items for emer­gency bags that will go to fam­i­lies es­cap­ing do­mes­tic vi­o­lence. We also asked for small gifts for the chil­dren, who of­ten ar­rive at safe houses with noth­ing.

When Her­vey Bay res­i­dent Mar­garet Vick­ers read the ar­ti­cle she de­liv­ered 10 hand­made teddy bears to the

Chron­i­cle of­fice yes­ter­day morn­ing.

Mrs Vick­ers said she en­joyed knit­ting the teddy bears that she would nor­mally do­nate to the hos­pi­tal. “I love knit­ting ted­dies and they bring so much joy to peo­ple who don’t have any­thing, es­pe­cially chil­dren,” Mrs Vick­ers said.
