A break away to create some special family memories

Our holidays offer a much needed respite to families whose children have been diagnosed with cancer. Thanks to fundraising we are able to send over 100 families on holiday together each year.

Holidays are a vital contribution that really can make a meaningful difference to people – allowing them some much needed quiet time away from the reality of the hospital wards and close enough to expert care for their children should they need it at short notice.

Candlelighters offer all families with a child on treatment the opportunity for a break at Center Parcs or by the coast at Primrose Valley.
