Leeds Rotary Club is one of the oldest in the country and this year celebrates 100 years of national and international community projects. To mark this special occasion, the Club is organising a glittering Gala Dinner, on May 11th 2016, at The Queens Hotel, Leeds.

Current Club President, Keith Harbage, has chosen Candlelighters to receive all surplus funds generated by the event and its accompanying Souvenir Brochure.

Nine of the Leeds Rotarians involved in the Centenary celebrations were welcomed to The Square today. They were able to see first-hand the difference that Candlelighters makes to families. It was also great to get an update on the progress of their Gala Dinner, with 250 guests already confirmed, some from as far as the USA, Germany and Kenya!

Candlelighters is so fortunate to have this incredible support from such a highly regarded local organisation. Thank you to everyone involved.
