The Candlelighters Families Christmas Party took place at the Royal Armouries on Sunday 29 November, and was attended by over 100 families.

Thank you to everyone who attended and helped make this such a wonderful event!

A special thank you to Barclays staff and the Physician Associate students from the University of Leeds Medical School who wrapped over 200 presents in a day and a half and helped us shift everything to the Royal Armouries for the party.

Special thanks too for their generous contributions to the Olivia Arnold Trust, Barclays and Aidan Wray’s family, and to all other who donated funds, gifts and items.

Thank you to all our volunteers on the day, to all who worked at the party, and especially to Wow Bouncy catsle for donating the use of the popcorn machine, Katie Stott and her team for running free of charge the amazing photobooth, Jessica May Frost for a beautiful performance, and Stagecoach Harrogate for their dance show and lovely choir singing.

And a massive thank you to all at Royal Armouries, for donating their time and skills year after year. We really appreciate your generosity allowing us to have the party at your beautiful venue.
