Late last year supporters flocked to Harrogate’s Restaurant Bar & Grill for a night of food, entertainment and a charity auction in aid of three local charities; Candlelighters, Theas Trust and Martin House Children’s Hospice.

Organised by Rowan Brunger (pictured below at our support centre The Square), the event was a fantastic success raising a staggering total of £3650 for Candlelighters alone! This donation can make an incredible difference for Yorkshire families affected by childhood cancer, both at LGI and The Square and through funding further research into childhood cancers.

Event organiser Rowan visits The Square to find out how the money raised can help support Yorkshire families affected by childhood cancer.

Here at Candlelighters we would like to say a massive thank you to Rowan and all those who supported the event for their hard work! We would also like to thank Harrogate’s Restaurant Bar & Grill for hosting the event.
