What is Team 500?

Team 500 is comprised of brilliant businesses who have generously donated or fundraised at least £500 towards the Candlelighters appeal at this difficult time.

Why do we need Team 500?

In such unprecedented times, families across the UK are facing challenges like never before, but for families affected by childhood cancer whose lives have already been turned upside down, COVID-19 is making life more difficult than ever. Children and teenagers with cancer are one of the most vulnerable groups in society. Families are isolating at home to reduce the risk to their child and many parents are crippled with anxiety and facing increased financial pressures, which can have a devastating impact on their wellbeing.

COVID-19 is also directly impacting the money we raise to support these families. We are seeing a huge gap in funding due to mass participation event cancellations and a severe reduction in community and corporate fundraising, which is likely to worsen over the coming months.

We are determined to keep our candle burning and without you, we cannot make this happen.
