Bringing families together

Each year we organise a number of events for all to enjoy.

Please note: Due to COVID-19 we have adapted our family support services, there may be some differences in the services that we are currently running in comparison to pre COVID-19. This may continue to change over time as we adapt our services to the guidance given and the needs of individual families.

Community Days

Candlelighters are coming to your community and bringing our much-loved support services closer to your home.

Why? Because we understand that living with a childhood cancer diagnosis can be an isolating & anxious time, and sometimes just chatting to someone who ‘gets it’ can make a big difference to our wellbeing.

Over the next few months, you will see a variety of Community Days running in areas across Yorkshire, these days will include:

  • ?Walks & Talks
  • ??Coffee Mornings
  • ????????Wellbeing Days
