Students at Craven College have raised over £220 to support families in Yorkshire affected by childhood cancer!

The group of 17 students studying Level 1 Land Based Studies at Craven College fundraised for Candlelighters at a plant sale they organised in May. The event took place at The Centre for Horticulture, where students sold a small range of surplus bedding plants, vegetables, herbaceous perennials and shrubs. They then handed over the fantastic total of £220 to Candlelighters supporter Bridget early this month, at a presentation event where they learnt more about the work their funds could support.

Here at Candlelighters we would like to say a huge thank you to the students, Craven College and all those who attended the event for their support.
