This year Candlelighters are proud to present Ethan’s Easter Egg Hunt!

11 year old patient Ethan Wilson is known for popping into the Candlelighters clinic office to have a chat with our Community Fundraisers Chloe and Nicki, when coming to LGI for tests and treatment. Last December, Ethan popped in as usual with a couple of updates on his ongoing investigations (he plans to be a policeman when he’s older) as well as some fundraising suggestions for the Easter period. Ethan’s ideas quickly became a talking point in the fundraising team and we are now proud to say his idea of a great Candlelighters Easter Egg Hunt for everyone to get involved in is now a reality!

The idea is simple – we provide you with a pack containing a poster, step-by-step guide and Easter Egg Hunt treasure map, featuring 50 or 100 numbered squares over a map of Yorkshire. You decide which square the Easter Bunny has hidden his eggs in, put the map on display and then let everyone take a guess at £1 a square! Once the board is full you then reveal who the lucky winner is! You can then pay in your funds raised so we can send you a special thank you so everyone can see how much they have raised.

Here at the Candlelighters we have some great prizes available for you to take away for the lucky winner – be sure to pick one up before you start your hunt so everyone knows what they’re playing for! Unfortunately these are not suitable for posting so if you are further afield it may be easier for you to source your own donated prize – our fundraisers would be more than happy to write you a fundraising authorisation letter to help you. Just get in touch.

Ethan’s Easter Egg Hunt is for everyone to take part in whether it’s your family, workplace, school, club, pub, hairdressers… The list goes on!

If you would like to take part, then please just let us know either by giving us a call on 0113 247 0372 or completing our contact request form. Thank you for your support!
