How can you help families this Christmas?

In the run up to Christmas 2017, we'd like to share with you some ideas on how to get into the festive spirit whilst also supporting families affected by children's cancer.

When a child is diagnosed, it turns the lives of everyone in the family upside down- and Christmas is a particularly difficult holiday for families in this situation.

Our aim is to provide as much support as possible, to help make the unbearable bearable and let families know that we are by their sides.

Can you help us do this? Here's some ways you can help!


1.) Christmas Card Competition! For children aged up to 13 years. Can you design the official Christmas card for the Lord Mayor of Leeds? The theme of the card is 'Leeds at Christmas'. Click here to find out more.

2.) Christmas Raffle - you can purchase your tickets here or why not take some to sell to family, friends or colleagues on our behalf? For more details and to read more about it please click here.

3.) Instead of sending individual cards within your workplace or group, why  not take part in our shared card scheme together and raise a bit of money for Candlelighters too! Click here to find out more.

4.) We have a new range of virtual gifts for Christmas available on our online shop. More information coming soon.
