If you’ve been following us for a while, you might be familiar with Elliot Gunn, founder of the #TeamElliot fundraising group. This year, Elliot became one of the youngest in the country to complete the Yorkshire Three Peaks, aged eight, in aid of Candlelighters. Throughout last year, Elliot and the rest of the team of family and friends completed a number of incredible challenges to raise funds for Candlelighters.


Community Support Worker, Chloe, and Regional Fundraiser, Rebecca, were super excited to welcome Elliot to The Square this month to confirm his fundraising total for 2021, which was over an amazing £6,000! This now takes Elliot’s fundraising total to over an astonishing £17,000 since 2019!


We are so, so grateful to have the support of such awesome and kind people like Elliot and the rest of the fabulous team; you are all total superstars. We can’t wait to hear all about your plans for this year too! Thank you Team Elliot!
