CANDLELIGHTERS has launched a new business-focused fundraising scheme.

The Bright Sparks Challenge aims to help the employees of local businesses develop their creative and entrepreneurial skills while generating funds.

It involves teams of up to eight workers being challenged to raise the biggest pot of money they can using tea lights. Starting on December 1, each team will have four months.

Candlelighters’ Bright Sparks Project Manager, Chris Salt, said: “We’ve seen the negative impact of COVID-19 on businesses that support us and wanted to launch a project that adds value to their business during these challenging times.

“Bright Sparks will give them the opportunity to motivate their teams and inject a bit of fun.” For more details e-mail, call (0113) 3229283 or visit
