This month a fundraising evening event has seen Menston sparkle in pink for Candlelighters, raising over £2000 to support the charity’s work!
Organised by Michelle Pattison, mum to 8 year old patient Owen, the Pink & Sparkle event was her biggest fundraising event to date and saw a small crowd gather to eat, drink and bid on a range of fabulous action prizes – with entertainment provided by drag act Miss Syren.
When explaining why she has, and will continue to, support Candlelighters Michelle said “Candlelighters helped us from the moment Owen was diagnosed – the play team sat with Owen while the doctors told us the devastating news”.
Following the success of this year’s night Michelle told the Ilkley Gazette that she hopes to make Pink & Sparkle an annual event.
Here at Candlelighters we would like to say a MASSIVE thank you to Michelle for all of her hard work and to everyone who supported the event. In particular we would like to thank the Menston Club and MKM-Photography for their support of the event.
