A Blue Toon bear which was handmade by a north-east learning disabilities charity has been gifted to the prime minister.
The Glendaveny Teddy Bear was given to Theresa May as a gift from Peterhead councillor Dianne Beagrie.
The mohair teddy bear was produced by the team of adults who have a wide range of learning disabilities.
On its left foot, the work Peterhead is stitched in an arch and on his right is an embroidered fishing boat at sea.
People involved with the initiative were delighted to see one of their bears take up residence at 10 Downing Street.
Marilyn Eddie is one of the three people who work in the Glendaveny shop on 41 Broad Street.
She said: “Dianne Beagrie came in and asked us to make this bear as she was going to a drinks reception with the Prime Minister and wanted something genuinely made in Peterhead to take to give her.
“It was a special bear.
“Our service users were chuffed they had made a bear for the Prime Minister.
“It was great to see pictures of it down there representing our area as the project does great work here.
“We have adults aged 18 and over who all have different roles – some stuff the bears, some make patterns, some sew – and all of them have a range of disabilities.
“It’s not really a proper business as such but the people here do a great job and we love seeing where our bears go.”
The teddy bear project has been running in the north-east town for 27 years.
All of the service users live in the local area, some who have been coming along since the project began.
Mrs Beagrie said: “I was invited to a reception at 10 Downing Street and wanted to take a gift that represented Peterhead.
“I bought a Glendaveny teddy bear with the Blue Toon tartan, Peterhead, on one paw and a fishing boat on the other.
“I gave her it as a gift from Peterhead and my surrounding wards.
“In the parcel was a leaflet explaining who and what Glendaveny do.
“The bear will now have a new home in 10 Downing Street.”
