Dolls raid teddies’ Kangaroo Flat picnic

DOLLS and teddies of all shapes and sizes filled the Kangaroo Flat Leisure Centre at the weekend.

Crafts people displayed some of their finest creations at the 22nd annual Bendigo Doll and Teddy Show.

Valerie Truant, one of the event organisers, said the event attracted more than 100 entries.

“It went really, really well,” she said.

“I’d say about 400 or 500 people came along to the show.

“We had a very good response from the community.”

Proceeds from the show will go to Bendigo Health’s Palliative Care Auxiliary and Make-a-Wish foundation.

This year’s theme was high tea with a touch of the teddy bears’ picnic.

“There were a few entrants who had done bears and dolls to match the theme, which was great to see,” Ms Truant said.

“We’ll be back again next year on February 22 but we haven’t thought of a theme yet.”
