Can you help bring light and hope to families affected by childhood cancer across Yorkshire?

For most of us Christmas is referred to as “the most wonderful time of the year”. However, there are many children and their families who are on a whole different journey around the festive season. Every year around 150 children in Yorkshire are diagnosed with cancer. Candlelighters offer practical, emotional and financial support to these children and their families. Their work lasts from the moment of diagnosis and for as long as a family needs them.

This winter, Yorkshire based children’s cancer charity need to raise over £60,000 to continue supporting families at this time.The charity want to be there for their families more than ever before, enabling them to make special memories, and to access all the support they might need. With a whole range of events and activities planned for all the family, from festive Grandparents Tea Parties, a visit to Stockheld Park for their Sibling Group, throwing their annual Christmas Party for families in Leeds and in Hull AND for the first time, this year, Candlelighters will be opening between Christmas and New Year at their Support Centre, The Square, continuing to provide wellbeing and talking therapies, especially to families staying over on the children’s ward at Leeds Children’s Hospital over Christmas.
