We provide practical & emotional support to children fighting cancer in Yorkshire


The pupils of Scarcroft Primary School have chosen to support Candlelighters in their work supporting families in their fight against children's cancer because Candlelighters have been there for families in our school and we want to help.

Pupils, parents, and grandparents have teamed up to design, build and race a soapbox cart in the Micklegate Soapbox Challenge in York and then we will raffle it off (in whatever condition it is after the challenge, having raced it round chicanes, over cobbles and jumps) to one person who has supported our campaign here to raise money for Candlelighters. You must be 16 years of age or over to participate in this raffle. 

We are very proud of our cart which is built off a steel go kart chassis and kart parts which we've modified to run on BMX wheels with disc brakes. The bodywork is a detachable plywood viking longboat.

Lots of people have already helped including Your Bike Shed who have paid for our entry and have supplying bike parts and S8 Racing Sheffield who provided kart chassis and parts. Please help too by donating here for a chance to win the cart (or what remains of the cart after the challenge) so we can raise the most we can for Candlelighters to help them with the fantastic work they do.

10 days after the Challenge we will randomly select one name from all who have supported us up to that time on this "Chance to Win Scarcroft School's Soapbox Cart Just Giving Page". The name selected will win our soapbox cart. Each name will be entered once into the raffle for every full £1 donated (so if you donate £5 you will be entered 5 times for example). The draw will take place at Scarcroft Primary School at 9am (GMT) on Wednesday 7th September 2016.

The winner will be notified by email, so please include your contact email when making your donation, and the winner's name will be published here after the raffle draw. Email addresses will not be used for any other reason other than to notify the winner and/or to thank you for your donation. The cart will be made available for collection after the raffle draw to the winner at Scarcroft Primary School, York or for local delivery by agreement with us.

We can not guarantee the condition of the cart after the Soapbox Challenge. It will be for any winner to satisfy themselves as to the safe condition of the cart before taking and/or using it and we can not accept any liability for damage or injury resulting from taking and/or using the cart.
