The 5 regional charities are:-
Wales – Latch – www.latchwales.org
LATCH is a charity that supports the children who are receiving treatment for cancer at the Children’s
Hospital for Wales and their families.
North – Candlelighters – www.candlelighters.org.uk
When a child is diagnosed with cancer, lives are turned upside down in an instant. Not just for the child but for their parents, siblings, family and friends. Priorities change and everyday concerns suddenly seem trivial. Getting well again can be a long and challenging journey, physically, emotionally and financially. Helping and supporting those children and their families is why Candlelighters was formed more than 40 years ago and it is why we are still here today.
