Facts and stats
One of Britain’s top selling women’s magazines, Candis is packed with features, health news, recipes and competitions in a neat handbag sized package which donates money to health charities through the Candis Big Give.
Candis launched as a leaflet in May 1962, reporting on a football pool called the Cancer and Polio Research Fund, later becoming a newsletter in 1965.
Candis upgraded from a simple newsletter to a full colour magazine costing 60 pence in November 1982, it had raised £18m for charity. By the late 1990s, the magazine was given a new look and increased its pages from 28 to 124 each month.
