We are so pleased to announce that our latest Company of the Month is Clarion!

This month we would like to celebrate our new Company of the Month, Clarion, who have raised over £10,000 this year for Candlelighters! We are so pleased with their incredible fundraising efforts for this year.

They have found creative ways of raising funds for Candlelighters like ‘Will you be my Valentine’ where employees anonymously gifted a cupcake to a fellow colleague. They have also held numerous events throughout the year including the Eurovision Sweepstake, a World Book Day competition and they participated in the fun of Pink It Up week.

Some of their courageous staff members have taken part in our challenge events like the Yorkshire 3 Peaks, 150-mile challenge and the Candlelighters abseil. Struan Mackenzie, one of their employees, and his friend embarked on the Wainwright Challenge and raised a fabulous £2,649 for our families!

Clarion have also helped us give our families an extra special Christmas this year. They held their own Christmas Advent Raffle, donated lots of selection boxes for the children at the Candlelighters Christmas party and at the hospital and also made up wonderful gift boxes for our parents on the wards to spread the Christmas spirit.

Clarion plan on offering another year of amazing support for Candlelighters and they hope to beat the total they raised for 2023 with some wonderful events lined up for 2024. We can’t wait to see what they achieve and are so grateful for the excellent effort they have made so far. Donations and commitment like theirs allow us to continue providing and developing our emotional, practical and financial support that we can provide for our families.

‘We are delighted to be able to support Candlelighters in the work that they do to help families across the region affected by cancer. We have been fortunate enough to have attended their Business Collaboration events this year and learn first hand about the support, therapies, events and care packages that they offer as well as the facilities that they have available at The Square and The Cottage.

The new research project led by the University of York is another example of why fundraising for Candlelighters is so important and something that we are proud to be able to support at Clarion.

From bake sales, to sweepstakes, Christmas raffles to abseiling down buildings, walking up mountains to sending surprise gifts to colleagues – fundraising is a big part of Clarion and we have loved working with the team at Candlelighters and look forward to another year collaborating in 2024.’ – Lindsey Wrenn, Partner at Clarion
