Candle of Hope ceremony

A significant part of Relay For Life is the Candle of Hope ceremony, which takes place as it begins to get dark. Here we take time to reflect on why we are taking part in this event with music, poems and readings. People decorate candle bags and dedicate them to loved ones that have been lost to cancer or to those who are surviving. A candle is put in the bag and they are all put round the track to provide the light through the night.
