Fearne Grant and her Dad Darren took on the ultimate challenge in July 2019 by climbing the almighty Ben Nevis in support of Candlelighters! They took on this incredible challenge to raise funds in memory of Nioni Grant.

After postponing a day due to adverse weather, on the 30th July 2019 Fearne and Darren reached the summit of Ben Nevis at an amazing 4,411 feet above sea level. The weather was perfect, with no rain or clouds which allowed them to take in the amazing views at the top!

Chloe, Community Fundraiser here at Candlelighters had the pleasure of meeting Fearne as she came to present us with a big cheque! However, since the cheque presentation they had more donations come in which took their total to an outstanding £466.38!!!!

Chloe said: “Fearne and Darren – you should be so proud of what you have achieved. We can’t thank you enough for your efforts and support! To provide the services we do to children and families affected by childhood cancer in Yorkshire, we rely purely on donations and the kind generosity of amazing people like you – we really couldn’t continue what we do without you! THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU!”
