Letter to Kids for life from Candlelighters…

Dear Kids for Life,

Thank you so much for your call earlier. Really thrilled that you are able to support Candlelighters with your donation of £500. A great phone call to receive on a Monday afternoon, thank you!

As promised, attached is our logo and below is a little blurb on us:

Founded  in 1976 by families and medical staff, Candlelighters continues to help support children with cancer and their families across Yorkshire. Candlelighters fund research, family holidays, grants, essential additional services within the hospital and vital support for families battling children’s cancer. Although we are over 40 years into our journey, our aim today is the same as it has always been: to bring support and hope to ordinary families who are facing extraordinary circumstances.

I hope this helps and thank you again for choosing to support Candlelighters.

Kind regards,

Kate Goldring
