We are so pleased to announce that our latest Company of the Month is Yorkshire Spa Retreat!

We are delighted to announce that the fabulous Yorkshire Spa Retreat are our Company of the Month! Having joined Club Candlelighters last year and pledging to donate at least £5,000 per year for the next three years, the team have really gone above and beyond this year raising a staggering £49,331!!!

The money was raised from two big fundraising events; a gruelling 598 mile, six day cycling challenge that CEO Miles Dewhurst, Friend Andy Mair, and Gary Molloy of Leisure Resorts took on, as well as the unforgettable Yorkshire Spa Retreat Ball. The cycling challenge saw Miles, Gary and Andy cycle along the coastline of Portugal in September and in a challenging and unforgiving climate, but all their efforts were absolutely worth it as they raised over an incredible £21,500!!

The Yorkshire Spa Retreat Ball was held in November and was a night to remember, with very generous guests donating and purchasing some exciting auction prizes, all to the tune of a fantastic £27,751!  Well done to Fenella and Jacqui for pulling together an amazing evening that everyone enjoyed.

Miles Dewhurst and Fenella Ratcliffe-Hobson, Directors at Yorkshire Spa Retreat said, “We are so proud to support Candlelighters. The work the team do is truly amazing, and it’s a pleasure to take part in these events to raise money for such a wonderful Charity.

Thank you to Yorkshire Spa Retreat for all your efforts this year, helping to save lives and bring comfort to families affected by childhood cancer.”
