A Harrogate company is doing its bit to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support this Christmas.

Family-run business Lights4fun, which specialises in decorative and festive lighting, has designed the 'Candle for a Cause' and every penny of profit from the product will go towards providing essential services for cancer patients.

Jo Naughton, Co-founder and PR Director at Lights4Fun, said: "We are passionate supporters of Macmillan and our idea was simple - to create an exclusive and unique product to support people affected by cancer. We've worked long and hard to ensure that the product does just that, and couldn't be happier with the final result.

"We have been delighted with the response since we launched the Candle, and have had customers contacting us to order more and to say how lovely the product is. Obviously we are hoping to raise as much as possible; almost everyone I speak to has a relative or friend battling cancer and benefiting from the varied services offered by Macmillan."

Macmillan provides medical, emotional, financial and practical help for all cancer patients, from cancer nurse specialists to grants for patients with money problems.

Michaela Ryder, North Yorkshire's Fundraising Manager for Macmillan, said: "It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Lights4fun to create this product so we can glow together this Christmas! Macmillan rely almost entirely on voluntary donations, so it is only thanks to the support of local businesses like Lights4Fun that we can keep supporting services to provide the best cancer care possible.

"It costs just £27 to fund a Macmillan Nurse for an hour, so every penny raised from the Candle for a Cause really will make a huge difference. Macmillan's ambition is to reach and improve the lives of everyone living with cancer, and with this exclusive candle, we can work towards that goal."
