After a whirlwind of events at Dobbies stores up and down the UK, we've been delighted with the feedback from stores and volunteers alike.
We're still awaiting the final total that our volunteers raised, but we do know that the amazing team of volunteers gave over 1,500 hours of their time, which is brilliant!
We'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone that made this season of events so special. Last year Dobbies staff and customers raised an incredible £170,000 - which we simply could not have achieved without the dedication of our brilliant volunteers.
We were lucky enough to be joined by 349 volunteers at Dobbies stores across the country for our three festive events; our Charity Preview Night, Santa's Arrival and Ladies Night.
Lauren, Cumbernauld Dobbies Volunteer said:
Anyone who hasn't already signed up for volunteering with Teenage Cancer Trust I would highly recommend it – it's a great experience and it's the best feeling ever knowing that I'm helping raising money for people like myself who has or had cancer.
If you missed the chance to join at Dobbies but would like to get involved, have a look at our current volunteering opportunities or just send us an email
Huge thanks to Audrey Gallagher, Steve Raey, and all of our other volunteer photographers!
