We’re absolutely thrilled to announce our Company of the Month for April 2022 is Oakwood Garden Rooms!

Leeds-based Oakwood Garden Rooms have been supporting Candlelighters as their charity of choice since December 2020. In this time, they have raised an absolutely incredible amount for Candlelighters through some fantastic online raffles.

Owner Liam Griffin and the team have used their industry contacts to source some brilliant raffle prizes, with the first raffle raising £5,199 and a Christmas raffle last year raising a staggering £16,605!

So far, the total raised by the company for Candlelighters is a whopping £26,269, which is enough to fund all our children’s talking therapies and our community days and activities for families for a whole year – what an amazing impact to have! And to raise this in under 18 months is a brilliant achievement for the team.

The Oakwood Garden Rooms team are fully invested in supporting our children and families, and we could not be more grateful for their support.

Our Partnerships Executive, Iain, says ‘It’s truly incredible what Liam and the team at Oakwood Garden Rooms have raised in such a short period of time for Candlelighters. To raise over £25,000 since December 2021 through different online raffles is amazing. From everyone at Candlelighters, we would like to thank the team for their fantastic efforts, what they have achieved, and for continuing to support our families.”
