Teddies of Love

Merriwa BEFREIND creates KYAL bears to support local schools and chaplains.

Local community group, Merriwa BEFRIEND meet every Friday morning at their local church cafe to build community through social interaction and knitting.

The group agreed to help our schools and chaplains by making some KYAL or Know you are loved Bears and Feelie Hearts. 

Many of our chaplains use the teddies to provide comfort, care, and encouragement to students they support through life's ups and downs.

Chaplain Estelle Van Niekerk and Area Chaplain Steve Jansz visited them to collect their first batch of bears.
