Two special teddy bears are about to embark on a trip of a lifetime.
The new furry recruits, who have been funded by SSAFA Volunteers, have enrolled in the Deployed Teddy Bear Scheme which will see them heading off on their travels with deployed personnel. Youngsters from Wittering Primary School and the Flying Start Nursery will follow the travels of the bears who will be sending regular updates and photographs to the children. In turn the children will be encouraged to write letters and stories back to the bears. The teddies, who have yet to find out the destination of their first deployment, are currently taking part in pre-deployment training.
