When registering please let us know if you have a preference and we will try to accommodate this where possible but cannot guarantee the slot of choice as teams/individuals sign up to the event and we maximise the number of fundraisers that can take part. Once you have registered we will be in touch to confirm the time allocated. Please do leave the full day free.

Please note, upon registration an Enthuse Fundraising page will AUTOMATICALLY be set up for you to use for your Abseil fundraising, so there is no need to open up another page for yourself!

To ensure Candlelighters raise enough from the events to cover our costs and then fund the many support services we provide for families, we need participants to raise the minimum fundraising target amount for each event. If you want to support us but aren’t sure if you’ll be able to reach the target, please do get in touch with us for a chat and we’ll help find the best way for you to support us.

By taking on a challenge event for Candlelighters, you’ll be joining #TeamCandlelighters and making a difference to children and families.

As part of #TeamCandlelighters, you will receive a fundraising pack and support from our fundraising team, a Candlelighters t-shirt  and access to our #TeamCandlelighters Facebook group where members can share tips, ask questions and get support. Once you’ve bought a place, don’t forget to request to join the #TeamCandlelighters Facebook group, here.
