Supporting Candlelighters – Our Charity of the Year
At PEAK, we believe in the power of community and giving back. Today, we want to share a heartfelt story close to our hearts and an exciting initiative we’re launching.
One of our Operations Manager’s nieces has been on an incredible journey since March when she was diagnosed with Burkitt lymphoma, she is on the mend now and is cancer-free. Throughout this challenging time, our colleague witnessed first-hand the remarkable work of the doctors and nurses who cared for her niece. But there was also another force at play – the unwavering support of the charity Candlelighters.
Candlelighters has been a beacon of hope for our colleague’s family, offering support, comfort, and assistance when it was needed most. Their dedication and care have left an indelible mark on our hearts.
That’s why we made a commitment to support Candlelighters as our charity of the year. Together, we aim to give back and help them continue their incredible work.
On the 22nd, 23rd, and 24th of October, we kicked off our fundraising efforts at Trafford Watersports Centre. A host of our staff members signed up to participate in a 48-hour cycling event. The event was completed by staff from all over the UK at our multiple centres. At the main fundraising day on Sunday 22nd, there was also a cake sale, face painting, axe throwing, and a surprise visit from Batman!
In total from the event we raised a huge £990 (including cash donations) towards our £2000 target and your support means the world to us. Together, we can make a significant impact on the lives of families facing challenges like our colleagues.
Be sure to check out our Instagram pages for highlights of the day and check back for updates on our fundraising events and how you can get involved.
Let’s shine a light of hope together with Candlelighters.
