Candlelighters

On hand, where we are needed

We're privileged to have our main office in clinic. Since day 1, we have always been based at the hospital, first at St James's hospital, now at Leeds General Infirmary. This is how we get the chance to meet the families we will be there for throughout their childhood cancer journey.

Clinic is visited by in-patients and outpatients. Here, you will meet some of the Candlelighters playleaders and you will also see the artwork we funded to change this clinical area into a friendly family place. In clinic, we provide new toys, arts and crafts, and a full distraction area.

We also fund a number of clinic equipment such as the drips, the bedside TVs, the Dyson fans, and more.

We also organise trips and events for the under 13s, such as the annual red carpet ball, an event for patients and their families.

And because we take care of the whole Candlelighters family, we also pay for teas, coffees and biscuits for the staff.
