Harrogate-based CNG, the UK’s leading independent supplier of natural gas for business, has raised more than £17K through a range of activities including a CNG-led Golf Day and its Lyke Wake Walk.
First came the Golf Day at Oakdale Golf Club in which a host of local businesses battled it out to raise more than £9k which is being split between the company’s chosen charity; Saint Michael’s Hospice and another exceptional local cause; Candlelighters.
Since then, the team has taken on a task requiring some serious physical endurance; a relay walk, covering more than 40 miles – the Lyke Wake Walk. This challenge saw the CNG team volunteer to take on some or all of the walk. The team has already collected £7805.72 for this challenge and counting. Once all funds are in the team will hand over their hard earned sponsorship to Saint Michael’s as part of an on-going fundraising schedule for the year.

Sally Amos, from Candlelighters commented:
This is a fantastic donation and will make a real difference to the facilities we are able to provide for the children being treated at the Children’s Cancer Unit in Leeds.
Jacqui Hall, MD of CNG Ltd commented:
We are so happy to be able to present these incredible charities with much needed funds.
As a business CNG aims to support local causes wherever possible and we are always thinking of new ways to earn our sponsorship. I am really proud of the way the team has thrown themselves into these challenges and look forward to hearing updates from the charities about how the money has been used.
Tony Collins, Chief Executive of Saint Michael’s, said:
