The Hall will also host a Teddy Bears Picnic where every local child and their bear are invited, this is an extension of our Tender Loving Care scheme, this scheme has supplied every A&E Department within the old boundaries of County Durham with over 75,000 teddies over the last ten years with over 2 million supplied World Wide. These are given by the A&E nurses, at their discretion to distressed young children in need of comfort and support and have been a huge success since their introduction.
