Candlelighters bus day out
£300 Candlelighters bus out for the day across Yorkshire for easy access for families

The Candlelighters bus is one of our most recent developments, having been launched in 2016. The fully converted single decker bus travels to different locations across Yorkshire, bringing the services of The Square to places nearer the homes of families we support. Research showed that families who live further away from Leeds did not receive the same level of support as those who live closer to Leeds. We want all families to be able to access all the support they may need, yet it can be difficult for some families to visit The Square for many reasons; cost of travel, length of journey or if a family is bereaved, they may not want to visit a place which could trigger emotions and memories. By sponsoring the bus for a day, even more families can benefit from the support it provides.
