Staff at Pure Data Solutions are extra motivated to raise funds for Candlelighters!

Last year, Pure Data Solutions raised £10,000 in aid of Candlelighters. This year, they aim to smash this. The first of their challenge will be the Candlelighters Yorkshire 3 Peaks on Saturday 28 May. 11 staff from across the company are training hard.

Michelle Lazenby, Pure Data Solutions Group HR Director, of whose staff are taking part in the event said ”Having supported Candlelighters in other challenges, we are looking forward to increasing this amount by taking on the Yorkshire 3 Peaks. It’s a great event both to support our local community and motivate our staff.”

James Blackburn, Marketing Analyst, says: “Our staff and clients have been really generous supporting us. And we’re taking our fundraising one step further. We love a friendly competition, so we’ve decided that the person raising the least sponsorship for the event will wash the car of the person raising the most. The extra challenge is on!”

You can sponsor the Pure Data Solutions team on https://www.justgiving.com/pdg3peaks or join them by signing up on www.maximumadventure.com/charity-events/candlelighters-yorkshire-3-peaks-challenge.html.
