Give in memory

Losing someone you love is never easy. But the impact of the current situation and the restrictions that are in place may make it even harder.

You may not be able to mark the death of a loved one or celebrate their life in the way you might have hoped to at the present time. But setting up an online donation page will enable friends and families to leave tributes and share stories as well as donating to help other families create precious memories of their own.

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 Hayden who has a rare genetic condition and whose wish was to have a spa pool.

How to donate in memory

Set up an In Memory fundraising page

Set up an In Memory fundraising page through JustGiving to create a lasting tribute online.

Collect donations on the day

If you're holding a memorial service, you could ask for donations to Make-A-Wish on the day of the service. 

Make a one-off or regular donation

To mark a significant occasion, why not make a one-off or regular donation in memory.

"When he’s in water he’s like a different boy, so relaxed and calm. So it’s lovely seeing him in the spa pool - he’s completely at peace."

Beth, Hayden's mum
