About Us

A group of like minded friends, Team George is dedicated to raising funds for The Candlelighters Trust - a registered childrens cancer charity.

The Story

George.jpg

George is an amazing boy. Aged 2½ he was diagnosed with Leukaemia. Subjected to daily chemotherapy and  medication every 4 hours, he has led a far from normal life, in fact he  can only remember being ill and spending time in hospital. Amazingly after nearly 6 years of treatment he won the fight when he was finally given the all clear, although he will always suffer the side effects of his illness and need regular checkups.

From diagnosis he 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, spend much of their time giving back to this wonderful charity.

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.
