Teddy's travels for stroke awareness

Meet Little Ted!. He's the star of the Trust's campaign for Stroke Awareness Month in May. He's been knitted by staff - and he also has a companion Tiny Tess - and they are going walkabout all over the country and logging selfies to boost awareness of the successful FAST campaign.

Since it launched the stroke symptoms awareness campaign FAST - which stands for Face Arms Speech and Time -  has meant more than 38,000 people have got to hospital sooner, saving many lives. 

Our two teddy stars have been all over including the Yorkshire Dales, Cockermouth and Lincoln and other more exotic destinations planned include Dubai and Las Vegas. This weekend he's going along to cheer on Bradford in their FA Cup quarter final on Saturday. The teddy selfies now have a huge following on a Facebook. For more information or to get involved  call Andrea Moore on x 3730 CRH
