Our supporters get their spook on!

Having been inspired by one of our families’ stories, Louise Byrne and her family hosted a spooktacular Halloween party in support of Candlelighters.

In less than a week, Louise and her family managed to pull together lots of ghostly bakes, a yard sale and even some ghastly entertainment!! Friends, family and the local community all attended, with some guest appearances from scary ghosts, bony skeletons and the Ghostbusters themselves!

The evening raised an amazing total of £585 which will help Candlelighters continue to provide the amazing work we do, to children and families affected by childhood cancer across Yorkshire.

If Louise’s party has inspired you, why not start planning yours for next year!
