Members of a coastal church group have been hard at work creating dozen of special teddies to help calm young children.
MediBears are small teddies used by health care professionals to turn a potentially frightening experience into a positive one.
And a group of first responders for the East of England Ambulance Service, who are used to being the first on scene following a 999 call, has been overwhelmed following a recent donation of them.
Responders from the Stalham group in north Norfolk have seen the effectiveness of MediBears in calming a child down.
So when they put out a request for volunteers to knit more bears, they said the response was fantastic.
