Concorde IT Group is proud to be sponsoring Candlelighters’s purchase of Christmas trees and decorations for their Family Support Centre, ‘The Square’ based at Leeds General Infirmary. The Square is used for emotional and practical support, along with treatments including massage, reflexology and yoga. This is the first year that the centre is open over Christmas so donations are helping them to bring some festive spirit for the families there.
Running since 1971, Candlelighters funds research, family holidays, grants, essential additional services within the hospital and vital support for families battling children’s cancer. The charity also has its own research academy, helping medical advancements that now mean over 70% of affected children go on to lead normal, healthy lives.
Concorde IT Group’s Managing Director, Neil Roberts commented; ‘We are very pleased to support such a fantastic cause. With Candlighters’s support centre staying open at Christmas, we are happy to help them to transform it into a magical place for the children and families. I do hope the trees bring a little ray of light to all those using and visiting the centre.’
