The Prince of Wales Hospice – Junction 32’s Charity of the Year 2019/20
We're proud to be supporting our local charity, The Prince of Wales Hospice.
The Prince of Wales Hospice has been providing care to people with a life-limiting illness since 1989. Their services are available to any adult from the Five Towns area of West Yorkshire. They care for patients with any life-limiting illness, including cancer, motor neurone disease and chronic heart and lung disease. They care for anyone over the age of 18, either as a visiting out-patient, or on their ward where they offer 24-hour specialist care. The Hospice helps people live better with their illness, with over half who stay with them eventually returning home. Many choose the safety and dignity of the Hospice for care at the end of their life.

At Candlelighters, we support families facing children's cancer in Yorkshire. We want every family to be able to continue accessing support whilst their child is on treatment, after treatment or when the family is bereaved. Yet it can be difficult for some families to visit The Square, our family support centre in Leeds, so in September 2016 we introduced The Candlelighters Bus. Families are welcome to take advantage of the free well-being services on board or they can just bob in for a brew and natter with the team. The bus offers a range of free treatments, including all forms of massage, reflexology and energy balancing. There is lots to keep the little ones busy; colouring books, DVD, toys & games so please don't worry about bringing your little ones with you. If you would like to book please contact Candlelighters at the Square on 0113 887 8333.
