Yorkshire Post Newspapers supports World War One centenary Lights Out campaign

Have your say

Yorkshire Post Newspapers is supporting the Lights Out campaign marking the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War on August 4.

Everyone is invited to take part in Lights Out by turning off their lights from 10pm to 11pm on 4 August, leaving on a single light or candle for a shared moment of reflection.

People can take part in whatever way they choose, marking the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War either individually or by attending one of the many events being organised around the country for a collective experience.

Tell us why you are marking the occasion - and where - and let us know what happened to your family in the 1914-18 war.

Commemorative candles can be purchased for £4 from Marks & Spencer stores or from the company’s website, with profits going to The Royal British Legion.
