Founded in 1976 by families and medical staff, Candlelighters continues to help support children with cancer and their families.
They fund research, family holidays, grants, essential additional services within the hospital and vital support for families battling children's cancer.
On the Wards... they fund essential additional services from funding posts, to purchasing IT equipment, to building a state of the art Pavilion for families to take a break from the sounds and smells of the hospital Family Support... whether they are supporting families financially, sending them on a much needed break or welcoming them to their brand new family support centre, The Square, they are there for families both practically and emotionally.
Through Research... each year they plow hundreds of thousands of pounds into the research and study of children's cancer. They are proud this is funded by the people of Yorkshire with the potential for international impact. Although they are over 40 years into their journey, their aim today is the same as it has always been: to bring support and hope to ordinary families who are facing extraordinary circumstances. - See more at: http://www.candlelighters.org.uk/what-we-do/#sthas...
