Our charity partner, Candlelighters, have been involved in different initiatives to support families who are facing children’s cancer across Yorkshire. These include donations, organising fun activities for children or being a friendly face to their parents in difficult times.
They recently shared Dan’s story – a father who had been supported by the charity after he sadly lost his daughter to cancer.
“Candlelighters have been a tower of strength to us. They’ve held our hand in the darkest hours.”, Dan commented.
As a Family Network Volunteer for Candlelighters, Dan helps run peer support groups in Leeds and raise funds for children and families affected by cancer.
