Candle of Hope


One of the most poignant parts of Relay, is the Candle of Hope Ceremony. This is when the whole Relay stops for 10 minutes so we can all remember those who we have lost to cancer, and also those still fighting.

Candle Bags

Dedicate a Candle Bag to a loved one who may be going through cancer or passed away to cancer. 

You can dedicate a Candle Bag on the weekend at The Relay Hub, or pick one up at our monthly coffee mornings. 

Each year we also have Candle Bags from Relays from around the globe. Join us at Relay for the Candle of Hope ceremony to see these.
