This year AutoDrain are delighted to be supporting Candlelighters, a children charity for young children diagnosed with cancer. Candlelighters is truly an amazing charity and based locally in Leeds General Infirmary Hospital, we wanted to show as much support as possible by raising funds by doing an AutoDrain charity skydive.

The Candlelighters Trust (Candlelighters) is Yorkshire’s preeminent children’s cancer charity and with 1,500 children being diagnosed each year, they are dedicated in providing a range of practical support to children living with this frightening disease, as well as their parents, family and carers.

Everybody is hit by cancer at some point, either themselves or a loved one…. but nothing could be more heart breaking than to hear news that a child has been diagnosed with such a terrifying illness.

The AutoDrain Skydive will take place on Saturday 28th June 2014 and our very own Paul Newton has bravely volunteered to accept the challenge. We extremely excited, not just to throw Paul out of an airplane but to raise as much funds as possible.

AutoDrain will also be at the Cars exhibition in June and we hope to see many of our customers there and they will have the opportunity to give donations on the day. You can see our progress on our justgiving page and on our AutoDrain Facebook page.

With your help and kind donations we can really help and make a difference to the children and families dealing with cancer and fund vital research needed to find potential cures and treatments for the different types of cancer affecting children.
