Important Event Announcement

In light of the Government’s most recent advice in relation to mass events and COVID-19, we are advising you to check with the event organisers for latest information on whether this event will be going ahead as planned or not.

Right now - when more children need our support than ever before - the cancellation of some of our flagship events due to the coronavirus puts around £1m of our fundraising income at risk. This puts our ability to grant children’s wishes under threat.

We are having to cancel, postpone or reimagine not just our fundraising activity but also our wishes - the very things wish families look forward to. During this period of uncertainty, we need your help more than ever in order to grant wishes once we are able.

We are as determined as ever to ensure that we will grant the wish of every child that needs us. Together, we can achieve this. Please donate today.
