Tatty Teddy raises money for cancer charity

Published on: 13th November 2012

Tatty Teddy has raised £14,000 in an auction for Children with Cancer, held at the Great Room, The Dorchester Hotel, Park Lane with auction prizes raising in excess of £180,000.

The most popular prize on the evening was an afternoon with Tatty Teddy and Steve Mort-Hill, the artist behind the Me to You brand, with a pre-Christmas visit to the winning child’s school or hospital. The recipient and their class will also receive an exclusive piece of hand-drawn artwork, a personally signed card, commemorative photo with Tatty Teddy and a Christmas Stocking packed full of Me to You goodies.

Jeff Banks, who ran the auction, ensured that the Tatty Teddy prize raised a whopping £14,000, even more than that of tickets to see The Royal Variety Performance, with backstage passes to meet celebrities such as Robbie Williams, Michael McIntrye and David Walliams.

Stephen Haines, chairman and founder of the Carte Blanche Group, was there to duo with Jeff Banks in auctioning the prize and commented: “Many of the prizes auctioned were donated back to the families with children with cancer, and we hope that the Tatty Teddy prize will also do just that. We’re thrilled that Tatty Teddy helped to raise so much money and my sincere thanks go out to the final bidder. The entire evening has raised a lot of money, for a fabulous charity and we’ve all had a great time. Perfect!”
