DERBY-- An anonymous donation was made through the Catholic War Veterans (CWV) Post 1562 and the Renegade Knights Fire Fighter Motor Cycle Club. The donor who wished to remain anonymous donated several boxes of plush Teddy Bears to children who may be hospitalized at Griffin Hospital of Derby. Members of both organizations take a moment to pose with staff, friends and visitors as the Teddy Bears were delivered on Christmas Eve. Pictured here in the front row from left are 98 year old Florence Robinson who happen to be visiting at the time, Christine Cooper, Suzanne Wisniewski, Sheila Boyd and Michelle Hughes.
