Barnardos Teddy Bear Raffle
Did you know that the Barnardos Teddy Bear Raffle has been raising vital funds for Barnardos for the past 10 years! This year was another great year for Teddy with over 438 companies, schools and crèches taking part across the country. Our Teddy has a big smile on his face because so far this year he has raised a whopping €45,600, with funds still coming in. These funds go directly towards our work providing practical and professional support to vulnerable children and their families across Ireland.
A huge congratulations to the Winner of our Grand Prize Draw, Danielle Williamson of Dennehy’s Health & Fitness Club in Blackpool, Co. Cork. Danielle won our fantastic €1500 holiday voucher from Tour America! We hope she enjoys this well-deserved break. We would like to thank Danielle and all of the staff at Dennehy’s Health & Fitness for the hard work and effort they put into their Teddy Bear Raffle and other fundraising efforts. We really appreciate their support.
Stephanie Whyte, Assistant Director of Children’s Services, Cork and Danielle Williamson, Dennehy’s Health & Fitness, Prize Winner
We would also like to mention a wonderful group of students from Rathbeggan National School who raised the highest amount out of all the schools who took part with their creative idea ‘Guess Teddy’s Birthday’.
