Each year every family that is on active treatment is offered a holiday in the UK by Candlelighters. The family of up to eight people can stay at a Haven Site in Filey or the choice of Centre Parcs in Cumbria or Nottingham. The charity provides this holiday for free with the addition of a cheque for travel expenses. Taking a holiday or short break whilst the child is on treatment can be really difficult so we take the strain out of the booking and arranging. This offers families a break in the routine of hospital life just for a short time and enables families to be together.
