Sheridan’s nominated Charity for 2014 chosen

Sheridan supports one nominated charity with fundraising events each year. After over 20 Charity nominations from employees, the successful Charity to emerge from the draw was Candle Lighters.

Candle Lighters is a Yorkshire based charity fighting children’s cancer. The charity was started by, and still is, run by the parents of cancer patients, helping support both children and their families being treated in the Cancer and Leukemia unit in Leeds General Infirmary.

The charity supports in many different ways including funding essential staff and medical equipment at the unit, supplying toys, books and activities for the children, and funding vital research needed to find potential cures and treatments.

Sheridan will be contributing to this support with a number of different fundraising events, the first being a sweep-stake that took place for the Grand National, 50% of the funds raised will be donated to Candle Lighters.
