We are delighted to announce The Property Buying Company as our Company of the Month for May!

The Property Buying Company began supporting Candlelighters in March 2020, with Chief Operating Officer, David Slater, deciding to undertake a mammoth fundraising challenge in aid of Candlelighters and Mind. Beginning on 10th March, David challenged himself to run 10k every day for 10 weeks, hoping to raise £10k to be split between the two charities.

At Candlelighters we were so grateful to hear of David’s significant commitment to supporting children with cancer, which stemmed from a close friend of his sadly losing their daughter to cancer a few years ago. We know how much of a difference fundraising like David’s makes to families going through such an unimaginably difficult time, and really appreciate every penny raised.

The team at TPBC have been spurring him on, making a £1000 donation to his fundraising page and helping to spread the word of his amazing feat through the press and social media.

Incredibly, after the 10 weeks were up, David decided to continue his challenge and over the course of the next year, has huge fundraising plans including half marathons, 10ks, mountain challenges, on top of ‘running, walking or kayaking’ 5k a day too. We know just how much David has put into his challenges so far and we’re so thankful for his determination and positive spirit – we’re behind you all the way David and can’t wait to see what you achieve!
