The Charity – Candlelighters, bringing light and hope to families of children suffering with cancer.

Founded in 1976 by families and medical staff, Candlelighters continues to help support children with cancer and their families, through funding research, family holidays, grants, essential additional services within the hospital and vital support for all the family members. Now more than 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.

The Story  –

Such a family are the Gallimore’s. George is an amazing 8 year old boy. Aged 2½ he was diagnosed with Leukaemia. During the 3 ½ years of his intensive treatment he has spent more than 25% of his life staying in hospital. During his treatment he was subjected to daily chemotherapy and medication every 4 hours and as his immunity was so low he had shingles 6 times as well as regular infection and viruses. He has led a far from normal life, in fact he can only remember being ill. Amazingly in November 2016 he won the fight when he was finally given the all clear, although he will always need regular checkups and medication to ensure he remains this way. From the diagnosis and throughout his illness, little George and his family have been supported by Candlelighters every step of the way – without them life would have been impossible. Mark and Helen, and their 4 children, now spend much of their time giving back to this wonderful charity. Team George is made up of their friends who simply wish to help them with their support of Candlelighters by raising some much needed funds for this special charity.
