Harrogate Candlelighters stand at The Ripley Castle Summer Fair was a great success, raising a staggering £3,659 and smashing the previous record of £2,100.

The sun shone and brought a great atmosphere to the bustling event, and everyone who visited the Candlelighters stand was extremely generous and supportive, and keen to help raise money for local families.
