For over 40 years Candlelighters has supported children with cancer, and their families, throughout Yorkshire. They support families financially, provide holidays and fund staff and equipment at Leeds Children’s Hospital. Their Family Support Centre offers a variety of therapies as well as support groups to all family members.
Children come from all over the country to see our hospital’s specialists and we work hard to fund elements that the NHS does not cover.
