Tuesday 15th December 2015
We have been fundraising for Leeds based children’s cancer charity Candlelighters for just over a year now. With previous efforts including a charity skydive which raised over £3000 and multiple bake sales. 

With Christmas just around the corner (10 days away AHH) we wanted to take our fundraising efforts up a notch, so we decided to put together a charity auction. Prizes were kindly donated by our suppliers, partners and the good folk of Leeds for the auction which took place on Friday 11th December. 

The bidding was open to those throughout our office base at Calls Wharf and our two partnering business centres Albion Court and The Tannery.

The prizes donated we’re fantastic. Some of them included: 
- Signed Kallum Watkins Leeds Rhinos Shirt
- A haircut and treatment at Architect hair in Headingley
- Jo Malone and Fortnum and Mason Christmas goodies from our friends at Elite Leaders.
- Champagne from Bracken Business Centres
- A case of luxury bestselling Laithwaite’s wine and Hotel Chocolat from the great guys at 4Mat.
- Two tickets to see Dynamo at Leeds Arena
- Two tickets to any event of your choice at Leeds Arena in 2016, courtesy of the First Direct Arena team.

I think you’ll agree these prizes were definitely worth placing a bid for, and those across all three business centres obviously agreed because the response we received was amazing! It was great to see so many people willing to get involved for such a worthy cause.

After many generous bidding offers, for all prizes on offer, only the highest bidders could secure the prize. And thanks to every one’s kind bidding offers we’ve managed to raise £650 for Candlelighters!

A massive thank you to everyone involved, whether that’s those who kindly donated prizes, those who took part in the bidding and those who managed to secure a prize. The money will go a long way with Candlelighters to help those children in Yorkshire with Cancer and their families at Christmas.
