Teddy Tombola at Festival in the Park, Frodsham 2023

Teddy Tombola 2023

Runcorn/Frodsham Soroptimists have been running a ‘Teddy Tombola’ stall at the ‘Festival in the Park’ Frodsham since 2009, raising funds for our local Hospice. The Festival is staged by partners ‘Rotary’ as part of the community voluntary sector for the Festival.


We run our Tombola annually in aid of our local hospice  ‘Halton Haven’. Each Teddy is given a number and the corresponding number is put in a box for the children to draw out. Every child is a winner.


This year we were able to raise £250 for the hospice, which enables men and women who need palliative care, to be looked after near their families.


Throughout the year all club members collect Teddies and Soft toys for the Teddy Tombola Event, these are washed ready for the stall. Members of the club man the stall throughout the day.


Children particularly enjoy our stall and certainly come back again each year, as our members say: “the expressions of wonder and love on the children’s faces stay with you as they leave hugging their new friend” – just one of the many reasons why the club has supported this event for the last 13 years.


Each year we have a competition “Name the Cuddly Toy” This year we had a giant sloth. The young boy who won this year was so happy to have “Charles the Sloth” – he said he had named him after our King.

Pictured here – some of the lovely cuddly toys ready to be won at our stall at the Festival.


Just a few toys left at the end of the day.

Now looking forward to making and appearance next year.
