Our supportive and giving community
The Tec Marina family is proud to support a number of great charities with regular fundraising events, including Children in Need, Comic Relief and Macmillan Cancer Support.
Tec Marina is home to a supportive, friendly community who are always happy to help others and give to those in need. Our staff and residents frequently come together to support the charitable causes we believe in with various fundraising efforts – whether this is by donating items to regular raffles (or buying tickets themselves), putting on their chef’s hats to make something delicious for a bake sale, or grabbing their paddles for an exciting ping-pong tournament in the building!
The wonderful charities and initiatives we have supported over the years include Children in Need, Comic Relief, Macmillan Cancer Support, Welsh Women’s Aid, Ty Hafan and the Oxford Cystic Fibrosis Centre. Here are some of the latest fundraising events to be held at Tec Marina:
Children in Need 2019
The Tec Marina staff organised a week of fun activities, resulting in the building raising an impressive £807 for the wonderful charity, Children in Need! The week kicked off with our famous ping-ping tournament and a yummy bake sale, and residents also took part in a raffle, a “rum bowl” (a wacky take on bowling, where participants rolled a £1 coin to see who could get closest to the prize) and a competition to guess the name of the giant bear donated by Tec Marina’s very own Jon Jones.
Comic Relief 2019
On Red Nose Day 2019, the Tec Marina family baked up a storm to raise a huge £615.77 for Comic Relief! Our residents donned their aprons and red noses to make plenty of delicious sweet treats (from vegan delights to gluten-free indulgences) and the building was beautifully decorated with themed bunting, a gleaming disco ball and delightful red balloons! These were all kindly donated by “The Little People Party Supplies” shop located in Barry.
