We’re delighted to announce that our company of the month for March is the fabulous team at Squire Patton Boggs, Leeds.

They chose Candlelighters as their charity of the year for 2021 and have been going great guns to raise funds for us, despite the challenges of fundraising when most of the team are working remotely. They kicked off the year of fundraising with “New Year, Same Us” and quickly followed this up with their “Every Minute Counts” challenge which was designed to get people active in the cold, dark early months of the year.

Hot off the success of their 2020 Virtual Bake Off the SPB team decided to run another this year and raised over £600, which can only mean that there were some top cakes and bakes submitted (next stop Great British Bake Off!). Their recent Easter Hamper also raised a super amount and with planned team challenges, Great North Run and Yorkshire Marathon entrants, the rest of the year is already shaping up to be a great success.

The charity committee at Squire Patton Boggs are so committed, enthusiastic and creative with their fundraising ideas, they really do deserve our Company of the Month award!
