Bereaved children will benefit from the fund raising efforts of staff in Tavistock, who are holding a day of competitions in aid of a charity that helps children of all ages explore the journey through grief.

Fun competitions

Local residents are invited to visit the store in Tavistock on Saturday 13 August to support the Plymouth-based Jeremiah’s Journey charity by entering a ‘name the teddy’ competition and suggesting names for a fluffy bear to be in with a chance of taking him home.

There will also be a raffle and lucky dip. All of the raffle prizes, including a food hamper and handmade cards, have been donated by local businesses.

Make a difference

Sarah Routly, store director, said: ‘We’re always on the lookout for ways to give back to the community by supporting local charities that will help our customers. Jeremiah’s Journey has touched the life of a member of staff in the past so we know what a difference their work makes.’

Raffle tickets are available for purchase in store now. Winners of the raffle prizes and teddy will be announced and contacted on Monday 15 August.
