The Leeds office of Gateley Legal has raised over £10,000 for children’s cancer charity Candlelighters.
The legal practice has supported the charity over the last 12 months through a number of fundraising activities including raffles, bake sales and a treasure hunt through the streets of Leeds. A total of £10,558 has been raised for the cause, which supports families across Yorkshire facing children’s cancer.
Andrew Johnson, partner and head of Gateley Legal’s Leeds office, commented: “I’m so proud of the team who have all come together to raise funds in support of Candlelighters.
“We are a passionate bunch of people who have taken time out to bake, run and above all have fun in support of Candlelighters. I’m pleased to see our efforts reflected in this great fundraising total for such a vitally important charity.”
Gina Trotter, corporate partnerships executive for Candlelighters, said: “We’ve really enjoyed working with Gateley and are thrilled to see this amazing fundraising total as the outcome of a successful 12 month partnership with the business.
“Sadly on average, 150 children are diagnosed with cancer each year in Yorkshire. Candlelighters support these children and their families as well as providing practical support and crucial funding at the Leeds Children’s Hospital, with the aim of making life a bit more bearable for ordinary families, during what can be an unbearable time.
“The team at Gateley have been full of enthusiasm and ideas and we can’t thank them enough for everything they have done through this charity partnership.”
