Wessex Group raises £5,000 for Dorset Charity Teddy20


After a year of fundraising, Wessex Group Ltd, based in Shaftesbury, is thrilled to present Teddy20 with a cheque for £5,000.

From fancy dress to cake baking competitions, the teams have pulled out all the stops and had huge fun doing so. For the most recent fundraiser the teams held a Christmas tombola with an impressive array of prizes donated by staff, suppliers and customers. Prizes included a 55” flat screen tv, Virginia Hayward hampers, wine, champagne and a lot of chocolate. The raffle tickets alone raised over £2,000.

In 2021, Sam James from the Wessex Property Care team nominated Teddy20 for the company’s annual fundraising charity.
Sam described his rationale “Teddy20 provide funding to families to ease financial pressures, offer a holiday respite in their ‘Ted Shack’ holiday home, and host parties, events and experiences for the children and their families. They also donate money to research into various forms of cancer.

I volunteer in various ways for this charity, and they never fail to blow me away with their amazing work. They work so hard to raise the money, let alone the work they do with the money. They are local heroes and the money we would raise would do so much good for so many families suffering the effects of children’s cancer.”
Simon Morgan, Director said, “The staff are fantastic and always get stuck in to raise money; it is heartening to know that the fun we have at the events go to a very worthy cause.”

Owen Newton, Founder of Teddy20 said, “We are very thankful to Wessex for their efforts this year and the amount they have raised for Teddy20. We survive solely on donations and their support will help us continue to provide support to children and young people suffering with cancer.”
