About this Event

This year at Candlelighters our CCAM campaign is more virtual than ever before! Childhood Cancer Awareness Month (CCAM) is hugely important to Candlelighters and our families and we can’t wait to get going to raise awareness of childhood cancer.

GOLDEN HOUR will be a time for all families, staff and supporters to recognise CCAM in any way they wish. Throughout the day on 16th of September, we’re encouraging everyone to dedicate one hour within that day to do something GOLD!

Whether that be, raising awareness by decorating your front door or window, honouring CCAM in style with a virtual gold-tie event. Or why not have a gold-themed treasure hunt, or a golden craft day and let your creativity flow? You could take some time to reflect and remember, by simply having a quiet cup of tea with an added touch of a McVitie’s Gold Bar. Or, as suggested by our team at the hospital, they’ll be having a socially distanced boogie on the ward to Spandau Ballet’s, Gold!

If you’re a family supported by us, why not share your cancer journey on social media? Our marketing team can help you with this via our BE BRAVE BE BOLD BE GOLD campaign. Just email marketing@candlelighters.org.uk for more info.

Our GOLDEN HOUR memories will never be lost and show that even in difficult circumstances we are still able to come together as one and help raise awareness.

However you choose to do your GOLDEN HOUR, we’d love for you to share it with us. Send in your photos, videos and messages to helena.fewkes@candlelighters.org.uk
