We are delighted to announce that our latest Company of the Month is the fantastic Caddick Group!

The Caddick Group started to support Candlelighters back in 2018 in line with their charitable giving priorities of supporting children and young people, as well as those charities helping to fight cancer. Over the course of 2021 Caddick have donated an astounding £52,000, as well as volunteering their time and gifting VIP experiences at Leeds Rhinos, helping to make a real difference to the families we support.

Part of their donation was to fund a day here at Candlelighters, and then in October 2021, Caddick held their annual “Moment in Time” ball which was an amazing evening of generosity and fun that raised a staggering £125,000 to be shared between Candlelighters and four other charities! We can’t thank the Caddick Group enough for all their commitment to bringing light and hope to families affected by childhood cancer.


“I’ve really valued working with the team at Candlelighters in support of their work with children and families facing such immense adversity. In addition, the feedback from the families who participated on the Rhino’s experience has inspired my colleagues and I, reinforcing our commitment to keep looking for new ideas to support and benefit the charity.”

Kairen, Head of CSR at Caddick Group
