Sketty School pupil Angelina Chugh

Budding Sketty School artist celebrates Dawsons’ competition win

Proud Sketty Primary School pupil Angelina Chugh is celebrating after having her winning drawing emblazoned on a Dawsons Property van.

The 10-year-old, who is in year six at Sketty Primary School, took top prize in the competition organised by Dawsons Estate Agents involving over 60 pupils from the school.

Angelina was delighted to see her drawings on all angles of the van which is seen daily in and around Swansea.

The theme of the competition was to draw a picture depicting family, houses and Swansea.

“I was really delighted to learn I was the winner because I have never won anything before,” said Angelina.

“It will be exciting to see the van driving around Swansea with my drawings and my name on the side.”

Naomi Webborn from Dawsons letting department said: “We were delighted with all the colourful entries received and Angelina’s winning pictures look perfect on the van.  We have already received several positive comments from those who have seen the van pass them this week.”

“We wanted to brighten up the van so decided it was a good idea to involve the school children from Sketty whom we have involved in some of Dawsons projects previously.

“Due to the enthusiastic response received we shall be looking to host competitions of a similar nature during the coming year, throughout our local communities.”

For winning the competition, which was judged by Swansea graphic design firm Hansign, Angelina was also presented with a family ticket for four to use at the Winter Wonderland whilst she waited for her van drawings to become a reality.

Headteacher at Sketty School Peter Evans said: “Well done to Angelina, I was delighted with the standard of the children’s work and to be asked to enter such a fun competition.”

Dawsons staff bid to win The Wallich’s charity fundraising challenge

Dawsons Estate Agents has just 50 days to turn £50 into a small fortune.

The challenge – known as Clash of the Corporates – is a competition run by homeless charity The Wallich.

Twenty businesses across Wales are competing to see who can turn a £50 loan from The Wallich into the most money in 50 days.

Dawsons has hit the ground running with a programme of money-raising events that includes a cake sale, a curry night, an auction and Halloween fundraising activities.

“We’ve got lots of other ideas in the pipeline,” Ricky Purdy, Director of Residential Lettings, Dawsons. “Suggestions have included car washing and pop up shops – it’s going to be a lot of fun and visitors to our branches should find it amusing.”

The £50 to start the competition was presented to Ricky by Zoe Westerman, corporate strategic relationships manager for The Wallich.

“Clash of the Corporates is a great way to bring the local business community together through some healthy competition,” said Zoe. “We’re looking forward to seeing what innovative and creative fundraising ideas the Dawsons team will come up with to help raise vital funds for our charity.”

Any money raised will boost the £1,300 Dawsons has already raised for the Wallich, which is its chosen charity of the year.

“Our staff selected The Wallich as the company’s charity of choice for the year because it has a number of shelters in Swansea,” said Ricky.

“The staff have really thrown themselves into it, and the Clash of the Corporates will be their biggest challenge yet. It’s going to be a really interesting 50 days! We just want to get the staff involved to have as much fun as they have in recent months and raise money for a good cause along the way.”
