The evening followed its usual format, with drinks on arrival before a meal was served. There were then short presentations by a representative of the Daisy Chain Charity and Nurses from the Accident and Emergency Department of the James Cook Hospital on the Freemasons ‘Teddies for Loving care’ initiative. (Teddy Bears, purchased with money donated by Freemasons, are presented to Hospitals. They are then given to children attending the Hospital if they are in a distressed state. The children are allowed to keep the Teddy Bears when leaving the Hospital.)
