Our Chosen Charity For 2018

Every year Gecko select a local charity to support, this year there was one outstanding option and we are delighted to announce that Candlelighters is our chosen charity for 2018.

Proud To Support Such A Great Cause

We caught up with Chris Bottomley, Managing Director at Gecko to get his thoughts on this great charity: “It was an easy decision for us to support Candlelighters for 2018, several people at Gecko know a local lad called Seb Murphy, who has been undergoing treatment for leukaemia. Since receiving treatment, Seb’s parents have spoken highly of Candlelighters and the dedicated work that they did over the many weeks Seb has spent in hospital. Several activities have already been arranged to help raise funds for the charity from quiz nights to family sports days and world cup sweepstakes!”

We are proud to support Candlelighters, having heard first-hand about the work they do which contributes hugely to keeping up the spirit of the children they work with.”

Amy Harrison from Candlelighters popped in to see us on Wednesday 16th May to give the whole team an overview of the work the charity does in the Yorkshire area. We were blown away when we heard how the money we raise could help families in this unimaginable situation. “I am delighted to be working with Gecko this year. Our corporate supporters are vitally important to making sure we can continue to support children with cancer and their families across Yorkshire. From entering teams in 10ks, holding bake sales, quizzes and other incredible events, through to buying our merchandise and raising awareness of our charity, our corporate support is so important, and so valued. Thank you so much for choosing to support Candlelighters.”
