This year sees the very first Candlelighters Awards, in association with Vista.  An event designed to say thank you to all the people who help Candlelighters shine more brightly.

Nominations are now open and tickets are on sale to attend this fantastic event on Friday 9th September, from 1pm at the Centenary Pavilion, Elland Road Leeds.

Guests will be treated to a three course late lunch and welcome drink and be part of the very first Candlelighters Awards which will recognise the amazing people, groups and organisations that help us make a difference to families affected by children’s cancer across Yorkshire.

We are proud to have the support of our headline sponsor Vista who, as well as being a great partner, are doing what they do best and supporting the event with their skills, resources and time.

“We’re delighted to be supporting the very first Candlelighters Awards, and we’re looking forward to seeing the nominations flood in. Candlelighters was voted for by the whole Vista team as our chosen charity for 2016 because the work they do is so important for families in the Yorkshire area. We want to help Candlelighters raise the profile of children’s cancer so that they can speed up progress in research, funding and treatment. We’re thrilled to be the event partner for the awards, taking care of all the production with our specialist in-house event management services, and plans are already well underway for a day to remember.”

William Sutton, Director of Operations, Vista
