OnBuy becomes official partner of Teddy Rocks

Published on: 22nd February 2018

OnBuy.com is backing a popular rock festival that is helping to lead the fight against children’s cancer.

Teddy Rocks Festival will take place from 4th May to 6th May at Charisworth Farm, Blandford, Dorset, and is being headlined by chart-topping rock bands Feeder and Ash.

OnBuy, the largest UK-owned online marketplace, is now partnering with Teddy Rocks Festival, providing significant financial and commercial support to help grow the event and make 2018 its biggest fundraising year ever. OnBuy is also working in close partnership with the Newton family, founders of the festival, by providing specialist online, commercial and design support for the event from its in-house team of experts.

All proceeds from Teddy Rocks Festival go to the charity Teddy 20, which provides emotional and financial support to children and young people suffering and undergoing treatment for cancer. The charity was set up in memory of Ted Newton, who died at the age of 10 in 2010 from a rare form of bone cancer after a brave battle with the disease.

The charity has raised more than £250,000 over the years and the Teddy Rocks Festival has been a significant part of that total, raising £167,000 in the past six years.
