My beautiful kind hearted disabled sister recovered from cancer and last year got her 5 years cancer free letter. When we say recovered she has been mentally and physically scared for life . 2020 was the year we lost mum to covid , throgh no fault of our own we never got to say good bye to mum , her nursing home shipped her off to hospital without any concent ! Going through her own battles she is still fighting to get justice for mum 😪

Celebrate your Yorkshire Star

The ancient city of Ripon is a magical place at Christmas – that’s why we’ve chosen this location for the Yorkshire Stars tree.

Unfortunately, in light of the recent Government announcement on COVID restrictions, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Yorkshire Stars Celebration event, which was due to take place on Thursday 16 December.

While our celebration event is not able to go ahead, our shop in Ripon remains open and you are welcome to pop in and see your star shining brightly on the Yorkshire Stars Christmas tree.

Visit our website to view the shop’s opening times.

The star that shines the brightest this Christmas

To mark the launch of Yorkshire Stars, we lit up Ripon Cathedral with 2,000 stars to represent the number of lives we aim to save from cancer every year in Yorkshire.

Thank you to Ripon Cathedral for allowing us to create such a poignant and moving tribute to all those affected by cancer in our region.

We hope our Yorkshire Stars campaign will offer a small comfort during what can be a difficult time for many families, while also raising important funds to support life-saving research in Yorkshire.
