Tuesday, April 30th 2013 @ 8:44 AM

BRISTOL, England, April 29, 2013  --Yankee Candle, the world's largest manufacturer of premium scented candles, today announced the launch of a limited edition 'Boston Strong' candle, designed to honour the victims and the first responders of the bomb attacks during the Boston Marathon. The Massachusetts-based company has pledged all net proceeds of the commemorative candle to the One Fund Boston, the official nonprofit organised by Mayor Tom Menino and Governor Deval Patrick, giving UK residents the opportunity to show their support.

"In the wake of such tragic events, the strength and solidarity Boston has taught the world is inspiring. As the International division of a Massachusetts-based company we wanted to show Boston our support and help those families most affected, we felt that people in the UK would be feeling the same and would like a chance to contribute." John Fontana, President of Yankee Candle International, said in a statement.

Made in America, the 'Boston Strong' candle fragrance is a heart-warming blend of cinnamon, baking spices, and a hint of freshly poured tea and will be available for £19.99 from http://www.yankeecandle.co.uk from early June.

The candle will be available in the USA and, in fact, you can pre-order it from here http://www.yankeecandle.com/detail/1300789  The commemorative candle will be $27.99 and is expected to come into stock from 5/22/2013
