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

Charity of the Year partners Lovell Eastern have so far raised a fantastic £8,590 for Candlelighters by undertaking all sorts of fabulous fundraising, including:

  • Hosting a charity golf day in July
  • Giving donations from the sale of show home furniture
  • Ellie Cockroft, Assistant Quantity Surveyor at Lovell and her husband, Adam, completing the Yorkshire Three Peaks in September and raising £2,420! Lovell generously matched this amount as an extra donation.

Robert Adams, Regional Managing Director at Lovell Homes, said: “Support for local charities is always something that is really important to us, but it’s particularly special when we can show our support for a cause that has such personal significance for a member of our team too. Candlelighters is a brilliant charity that provides great levels of care and support for families who are going through an exceptionally difficult and traumatic experience. The Lovell Homes team has worked incredibly hard over the past year to raise vital funds for the cause. But special mention goes to Ellie for all her efforts in tackling the Yorkshire Three Peaks – certainly no mean feat.”

“A big thank you to Ellie, her husband Adam and the rest of the Lovell Homes team for all their hard work so far this year. Each year, we rely on the efforts of those who selflessly give up their time to raise funds for us. Without their efforts, we simply would not be able to carry on doing the vital work we do across Yorkshire to support families. – Iain Blackwood Hobbs, Candlelighters Partnerships Executive
