Ross Forsyth and Syd Bolton Even though the loss of Bingo has had great impact on many of the programs offered by the Brantford Jaycees, there is some good news. The Kelly Foundation, a local foundation started by the late Stuart & Lillian Kelly, has stepped up with a five-year committment to continue the Jaycee Bear program. This program provides teddy bears to children in stressful situations, such as a ride in an ambulance or in an abusive home. The bear often allows children to point out where they hurt to medical personal by pointing to the bear and not having to speak. The committment allows for $1500.00 for each of the five years.
