The sun was shining over us this weekend as events were held throughout Yorkshire and beyond!

Fundraisers took part in challenges, cycling from Aberdeen to Bradford in memory of Candlelighters talking therapist Greg Vinnicombe, or running the Leeds Half Marathon for or in memory of a loved one.

Other supporters waited for sunset, as ladies wore gala dresses and gents wore black tie at the Heathfield School Charity Ball and the Ilkley Candlelighters La Vie En Rose Ball.

We also celebrated the lives of children and young people who are no longer with us at the emotional but beautiful Day of Memories event, with music, readings, balloons and a room full of love.

Thank you to everyone involved, for giving your time, raising funds, and remembering and celebrating with us. It’s a great privilege to be part of the Candlelighters family with you and to support you.
