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

They have recently hit the incredible milestone of £150,000 raised since they became part of the Candlelighters family eight years ago. The amazing people at Optm have taken on some fabulous challenges and events to raise funds, from walking Snowden at night, taking on the 3 Peaks, walking over fire, jumping out of planes, dunking CEO Stephen O’Brien in ice (and other carefully selected accoutrements!!!!), taking on Total Warrior and this year, launching their very first golf day, the Candlelighters Cup.

The team at Optm are so passionate and dedicated in their desire to make a difference to our families that we are even included as part of their induction for all new starters. We also cut the ribbon on their brand new offices; HOW AMAZING!!!

This month, we wanted to say a massive thank you in recognition of all that Optm have done and continue to do; they are a very important and special part of the Candlelighters family.
