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.
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.
