After raising money from a special Wimbledon spot-the-ball competition generous Dawsons staff have donated a cheque to Ty Olwen Hospice at Morriston Hospital for £1,575.43.
Staff in all Dawsons’ offices and branches held the event in the final week of Wimbledon fortnight to raise the funds.
“We are incredibly grateful for the staff of Dawsons, and especially the Morriston branch, for presenting us with this very generous donation,” said Helen Murray, Chairman of Ty Olwen Trust.
“We couldn’t run Ty Olwen if it wasn’t for kind people like Dawsons’ staff for helping us raise some of the £420,000 we need to maintain the service we give.”
It is part of Dawsons’ continued pledge to raise money for community charities. Recently the Llanelli branch took part in the inaugural Burry Port Raft Race, sponsored by the estate agent, raising money for the RNLI and an African football charity.
“I have to give a big thank you to all our staff and particularly those in Morriston who raised this money for Ty Olwen with the Wimbledon tennis event,” said Chris Hope, Senior Partner at Dawsons.
“I think everyone knows someone affected by cancer and we should all be grateful for the wonderful work Ty Olwen does at Morriston Hospital in caring for people with cancer.”
