Where your money goes
In order to operate as efficiently as possible, we work with volunteers as much as we can, and try to source items and services for free whenever possible.
- Between Jan 2018 and Aug 2018, we had the support of 854 volunteers without whom we simply wouldn’t have been able to operate.
- We also secured £302,617 of gifts in kind, which saved us from purchasing wish items, goods or services of that value.
Inevitably, wishes do cost money though and we rely on people like you to raise the funds we need to grant those wishes. We also invest in fundraising to ensure that there is enough money available to grant the wishes of the children who will turn to us in the future.
- For every £1 we spent, 63p was used to grant wishes. The remaining money was invested in fundraising.
- For every £1 we invested, we generated £2.09.
