On Saturday 16th April 2016, a determined family group took on the Yorkshire 3 Peaks to raise awareness around Neuroblastoma, and nearly £2000 sponsorship for Candlelighters, in memory of  Pierce White Carter.

Dom White, leading the group, said “During Pierce’s two and a half years of illness, Candlelighters provided us all with support and supplied the hospital wards where he was receiving treatment with things to help keep the children entertained and their spirits up: games, books, jigsaws, games consoles, TVs, DVDs, toys – the list goes on.

What they do is fantastic as sometimes the children just need to feel like they have their home comforts. The Candlelighters go a massive way in helping to achieve that.”

A huge thank you to Dom, Lucy and family for taking on this challenge in support of Candlelighters, and for their kind words about how they were helped through some really tough times.
