We’re delighted to announce that our fundraising efforts in 2015 raised a total of £1689.16 for our two Charities of the Year.
In September, nine of the Optimum Medical team took on the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge. A gruelling 25 mile hike up the three highest peaks in the county. And for those members of the Optimum Medical team who didn’t fancy the peaks, we ran a weekly Great British Bake Off challenge.
Last week we visited Candlelighter’s and the Leeds Children’s Hospital Appeal to present the money we’d raised. It was a fantastic opportunity to meet with members of the charities and find out how they will be using the money. Both Candlelighter’s and the Leeds Children’s Hospital Appeal do some fantastic work to support children and their families in the Yorkshire region and were extremely grateful of the fundraising support we could offer.
Brian Curran, Corporate Fundraiser at Candlelighter’s told us “You have helped us support children and families who are facing their own challenges of a childhood cancer diagnosis. As you can appreciate, this is a life changing challenge and your support has had such a positive effect on so many people.”
“Your support has enabled us to help these children and their families. Without you we wouldn’t be able to make life a little bit easier.”
As of 1st April our new financial year begins. We’ll be voting on a new Charity of the Year and dreaming up ideas of how we can challenge ourselves. Watch this space!
