Ted­dy be­ar tar­get of 500 re­a­ched

Mossel Bay Advertiser - - Polisie | Police -

The ca­re be­ar pro­ject, in which hel­pers in the com­mu­ni­ty knit be­ars and do­na­te them to the victim em­po­wer­ment pro­ject at po­li­ce sta­ti­ons, was set a new tar­get of 500 be­ars for the end of the y­e­ar.

Chair of the Mos­sel Bay Com­mu­ni­ty Po­li­cing Forum, Le­on van Dyk, says this tar­get has al­re­a­dy been re­a­ched.

The i­ni­ti­a­ti­ve is ma­de pos­si­ble by vo­lun­teers and hel­pers in the com­mu­ni­ty, who knit the be­ars.

Be­ars ha­ve been do­na­ted to the Victim Em­po­wer­ment Pro­ject to be gi­ven to child­ren who ha­ve suf­fe­red trau­ma.

The victim em­po­wer­ment room at the Mos­sel Bay Ma­gi­stra­te's Court will be un­der­going a re­vamp.

The com­mu­ni­ty has been as­ked to get in­vol­ved as the room is cur­rent­ly not de­co­ra­ted.

A­nyo­ne who would li­ke to get in­vol­ved can con­tact Van Dyk (082 651 6228).
