Sunbury paramedics Lucy and Emily are excited about handing out Lions Trauma Bears to kids.

The teddy bears, donated to Ambulance Victoria’s Sunbury depot by the Lions Club of Sunbury, will be carried by local paramedics and given to children facing stressful situations.

Sunbury Lions president Helena Thompson said being able to cuddle one of the bears could often make all the difference to youngsters in need of comfort.

The local club runs numerous ongoing projects and fundraising activities.

Sunbury Lions are always on the lookout for new members.
