Wolfestone founders Roy Allkin and Anna Bastek decided to support Tenovus Cancer Care last year and pledged to raise £10,000 to celebrate their 10th anniversary as a business. Along with sister company, VoiceBox, their staff have taken on a number of brilliant challenges including the St David’s Day 10k run, the Tenovus Cancer Care 10k, the Goodnight Walk and CEO Anna Bastek even took on the Ironman Challenge in Sweden, raising £1,250.
They’ve also hosted a Mary Berry-esque bake-off, a pancake day, a Lord Sugar Apprentice-style challenge, a gala dinner and donated 100 bags of stock to the charity.
Roy Allkin, one of the Wolfestone founders, is proud of the staff who have taken part in raising money for Tenovus Cancer Care. “In honour of us reaching our double digits, we knew we wanted to partner with a charity to raise money for a good cause. What better way to celebrate than to give instead of receive?”
Tenovus Cancer Care brings treatment, emotional support and practical advice to where it matters most: the heart of the community. With continued support from companies like Wolfestone, the charity can help even more people affected by cancer.
Carys Burgess, Corporate Relationship Manager says “It’s been brilliant working alongside Wolfestone and VoiceBox and we’re so pleased they’ve worked together to achieve this fantastic fundraising total. Through their events, they’ve also helped us to raise awareness for Tenovus Cancer Care and the cancer support services we offer within West Wales and beyond. We extend a big thank you to all of their employees for their inspiring efforts to reach the £10,000!”
