Give in memory

Losing someone you love is never easy. Making a donation in memory of a loved one is a wonderful way to remember and celebrate their life. We know these gifts have extra meaning and we’re always grateful to receive them.

Thanks to kind people like you, we can continue granting life-changing wishes to children and young people with critical illnesses, like Liam who has sickle cell disease and wished to be a guard at Buckingham Palace.
