To our supporters, given the current circumstances around the COVID-19 pandemic we need you now more than ever.

We are already seeing a decrease in our fundraising support, which is likely to continue or even worsen over the next few months.

It costs £5,000 a day to run the charity and bring light and hope to families affected by childhood cancer across Yorkshire. Just £3 could pay for arts and crafts materials to keep a child occupied whilst they stay on the ward. If you’d like to make a donation, please click on the Donate Now button below, every penny will make a huge difference to us right now!




Further to the most recent government guidelines we’re working hard to find new and exciting ways to fundraise!

So please follow us online or call us on 0113 322 9283 to see how we can support you in your fundraising efforts.

Where you are raising funds for us, if you are able, please transfer monies to us directly to our bank account rather than bringing cash into the office, you can call your Candlelighters contact to arrange this. Please also call us if you were planning to visit us for any other reason.

We understand that this will be a difficult time for a lot of people, so any support you can give would be really appreciated.

We’ll be in touch again soon with any updates.
