Welcome to the Ilkley Candlelighters Ball website

Candlelighters Ball 2020


It is with a heavy heart that due to the Coranovirus pandemic we have made the decision to cancel our upcoming Roaring Twenties Ball, which was due to be held on 2nd May at Rudding Park.

The children supported by Candlelighters are one of the most vulnerable groups in our society, we would like to continue to support them during this challenging period and long into the future.

The uncertain times we are living in are having a direct impact on the money being raised to fund the services Candlelighters delivers. Their needs are as acute as ever and if you feel you can support them with a donation please contact us

Ilkley Candlelighters would like to thank all those who have supported us over the years and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.
