As a group, we believe in the power of the dub community. When we all come together and work for a common cause, amazing things can happen. We are a family-friendly group, and we all need a little help every now and then, which is why we support a number of different charities. Our admin team work long and hard to organise these events, but none of it could be a success without the support and generosity of our members. If you are a charity would like to be considered for fund-raising, please contact us now with some details.
Our First Full Year
The Momentum Builds
A Tough Year
When You Wish Upon a Star
Dubs at the Bush
We decided it was time to put on our first one day mini-festival; Dubs at the Bush! The Hollybush Garden Centre agreed to be our venue (hence the name) and the call was put out for dispalyers and traders. Before long, we were fully booked and despite the poor weather forcasts, everything went ahead as planned. The event attracted thousands of visitors throughout the day and a great time was had by all. More importantly though, we raised another £2,041 for the amazing When You Wish Upon a Star charity.
A Busy Month
September proved to be a busy, yet successful month for WVVW. We dedicated both of meets to Coffee, Cake & Campers for Cancer and our wonderful family pulled together. On both dates, we had loads of cakes donated and plenty of members coming along to eat them! Between the two dates, we managed to raise over £355 for Macmillan Cancer Support. In addition to this, we had a pair of tickets to VDubs in the Valley donated too, which we raffled off, making an extra £50 for When You Wish Upon a Star.
Our first ever Winter Dubland event at The British Ironworks Centre in Oswestry got off to a shaky start thanks to the terrible cold weather. The field we were meant to be using was covered in frost and deep mud (as Deadbug found out when I tried to drive on there). Nevertheless, we all pulled together, and it proved to be a huge success, enjoyed by all. Over the space of six hours, we managed to raise £1201 in cash for Santa's a Gangster, sell £500 worth of raffle tickets for the Joker Buggy and collect 97 gifts for kids to open on Christmas morning.
2024 Charity Calendar
For the past three years, WVVW has been designing and selling a charity calendar, raising funds for Santa’s a Gangster, an amazing organisation that works hard to ensure no children wake up without a gift under the tree on Christmas morning. The calendar is made up of all our Cover Star winners from the previous year. This year, we sold thirty-five calendars, raising n additional £350 and bringing our yearly charity total to over £5,000!
