Kingston Hospital is asking people to bring their teddy bears as it celebrates 70 years of the NHS.

From 1pm to 3.30pm on July 14, the hospital will be welcoming people through the doors to mark the special occasion with family friendly events, a tea party and even a raffle.

The event will incorporate the national NHS Big 7Tea fundraiser, and a Teddy Bear Hospital for children with all proceeds going to the hospital's charity.
