The fun in fund-raising
WOODS Estate Agency of Devon have launched a Spring Appeal following the success of their Christmas fund-raising effort to help local children.
In the lead up to Christmas, over 250 fluffy Woody Bears and more than £80 in cash were shared between children’s charities.
For every valuation carried out by the popular and well-established agency – in both its sales and lettings departments – a bear was donated to the appeal, and the real life-size Woody collected the cash during his appearances at late-night shopping sessions in the town.
Now comes the Woody Bear Spring Appeal - and for every sales and rental valuation carried out by Woods up to the beginning of May, the agency will donate a Woody mug filled with chocolate eggs to Families for Children.
Once the appeal has ended, Woody will head off to hide the chocolate-filled Woody mugs for the lucky children to find in a fun and exciting Families for Children chocolate egg hunt.
Fluffy Woody Bears are due to go on sale at www.woodybear.co.uk. and Sarah Thomas, co-ordinator of the Woody Bear Appeal at Woods in Newton Abbot, said: “The little Woodys aren’t just fluffy bears, they represent the support of children who need it.
“All profits will be donated to The Woody Bear Appeal and shared between Woody’s chosen children’s charities, so those buying a Woody for a loved one are also giving something to another child too. We’re looking forward to the chocolate egg hunt, I think Woody will have a ball, hiding all those eggs and the children will love hunting them out!”
