Dorchester Deli Fundraising Marathon For Weldmar


Published at 12:04am 21st December 2014.

Hampers, champagne and even a free day of golf were some of the prizes on offer as a Dorchester delicatessen continued it's fundraising marathon for Weldmar Hospice.

Owner of The Fridge, Wayne Garnett, is trying to raise £20,000 for the charity to mark his shop making it's 20th anniversary.

Wessex FM spoke to him at the draw and where he told us there's still plenty more fundraising to come.

He said: "The raffle raised alone about £1,600 so altogether we're just over £5,000 so we're a quarter of the way there."

"It feels a long way but we've got plenty of initiatives next year to get as there!"

The public were sold squares for £1 each over the last couple of months for a chance to win some the fantastic prizes up for grabs.

As fate would have it, Wayne's mother won the first prize of a £200 hamper.

She was shocked and stunned has kindly stated that she would like the hamper to be sold with the money going to the fundraising for the hospice.
