A Bear-y Cute Raffle

Back in Autumn 2018 we became the proud guardians of a certain larger than life Holdens Teddy Bear. He was a little oversized to live with us permanently so we decided that he deserved a new home.

A Bear-y Cute Raffle

Edward Holden…. Teddy to his friends, chilled out in our Edgworth shop over the Autumn and Winter whilst lots of lovely customers bought raffle tickets for a chance to win him and take him home in time for Christmas.

The raffle tickets were gratefully received and helped raise hundreds of pounds that were to be donated to Kidneys for Life a charity that is very close to our hearts here at Holdens & Co. and we know from first hand experience how much any monetary donation, big or small, can help patients in need of and in receipt of kidney transplants.

Unfortunately whilst Teddy was on holiday with us we were broken into at the shop and much of the raffle money was stolen 🙁

Don’t worry, we made up the shortfall so it all goes to help the charity.

After months of tickets being purchased and customers giving Teddy lots of cuddles and offers of a good home, we had the final draw on 20th December and the winner was SUMMER, who was very excited when she found out that Teddy was going home with her for Christmas.

He was renamed to Jack (a lovely tribute to the lovely Jack Holden) and collected on Christmas Eve in time to wake up in his new home for the perfect, magical Christmas morning!
