We have a slightly different Company of the Month feature for June… we’d like to take this opportunity to give massive thanks to all the businesses who joined in with Pink It Up this year!

After a particularly difficult year for our flagship campaign last year and recently receiving our worst two months of income since the start of the pandemic, it was amazing to see so many fantastic companies who were willing to join in and raise much-needed funds and awareness.

It looks like you all had such fun and we’ve loved seeing the broad range of activities that have been taking place around Yorkshire! We’ve seen pinked-up offices, fancy dress, bake sales, pink dress down days, pink waxing, pink raffles, pink hair dyes, a running event, and even a proportion of product sales donated to Candlelighters. Whew – you have all gone for it and absolutely smashed it!

So K2 Bond Street, AdviserPlus, Supplies for Candles, Venatu, CDS, Fox’s, John Cotton, Arctic Hayes, Capsticks, Mowgli, Mackenzie Stuart, Fluid IT, Corecom Consulting, Sugar Rush Sweeties, Quarry Garage Huddersfield, and Longley Park Car Garage  – thank you from all of us at Candlelighters. You really have helped to make a huge difference to the children and families we support.

Did your workplace take part in Pink It Up 2021 too? If so, please let us know about it and share your stories and photos with us at [email protected].
