To our wonderful volunteers,

In these challenging times, we wanted to give you an update about Candlelighters and your volunteering, and take a moment to thank you for your amazing support. Candlelighters absolutely couldn’t function without you and we can’t tell you enough how much you mean to us!

As we’re sure you will understand, with the current COVID-19 pandemic we’re following the latest Government guidance, and to follow that guidance, for now we are postponing the majority of services delivered from The Square and in the community, which means, we need to put a hold on all volunteer activity to protect our families, supporters, and teams (be they staff or volunteers). We will continue to review this and update you according to the guidance we’re given as the situation progresses.

*If you’ve signed-up to volunteer at a Challenge Event over the coming months we are planning for them as if they’re still going ahead, though the dates may be postponed by the event organisers, so we will be in touch with any information regarding these as soon as we are notified.*

If you’re not registered to volunteer at a Challenge Event, please have a look at what’s available (https://www.candlelighters.org.uk/howyoucanhelp/volunteer-for-candlelighters/current-volunteering-opportunities/challenge-event-volunteer/) and drop us an email at volunteering@candlelighters.org.uk if you can help out, we’d really appreciate it!

We can’t thank you enough for all your tremendous support and dedication; it means so much to us! Please remember, we will need you more than ever once this is over so be sure to keep in touch with us.

You can join https://www.facebook.com/groups/CandlelightersVolunteers/ which is a group just for current volunteers, follow us on social media for updates and help us to keep Candlelighters in the forefront of people’s minds by sharing our posts.

Thank you so much, we can’t wait to see you all again soon!
