We are delighted to announce that our latest Company of the Month is the amazing My Energy Grants!

The Barnsley-based company first began supporting Candlelighters in 2021, joining Club Candlelighters as Transformers – and pledging to donate £25,000 every year for three years!

Over the last year, My Energy Grants have truly committed to being an important part of the Candlelighters family. Over that time Managing Director, Shaun Yates, has taken on two marathons, the whole team completed a marathon walk in December 2021 and the business donated £5,000 to sponsor our star on the ginormous Christmas Tree at our family support centre, The Square, helping to ensure Christmas was as magical as possible for patients and their siblings.

This year, the team organised their first golf day, held at Waterton Park, Wakefield. Shaun and the team dedicated many hours to engaging local businesses for raffle prizes and worked with the golf club to ensure their first event was a great success. Not only did the team run golf competitions and raffles throughout the day, they also held an amazing auction on the evening and in total raised an incredible £13,000.

Shaun added, “We’re very honoured to be announced as Candlelighters business of the month, we’re very passionate about the cause and the wonderful work that this charity does. Our recent event helped to raise some much needed funds and all our staff were delighted to be involved and thoroughly enjoyed the day and evening event. We feel very lucky that we had the privilege of meeting one of the Candlelighters family and was inspired to hear their story and see first-hand how Candlelighters impact local families.”
