How your money helps

For a child, like sixteen-year-old Willow who's living with Aicardi syndrome, a condition that causes developmental delay and seizures, life can often be filled with endless medical appointments, gruelling treatment and long periods of time in hospital away from their friends and family. This is a far cry from the carefree childhood they should be enjoying.

With your support we're helping to grant life-changing wishes that enable a child to look past their illness and give them hope for the future.

"Willow is the bravest, most resilient and sweethearted person. She is incredible, and music gets to her in a way that nothing else does. Seeing Willow happy has been the best thing today. I would like to thank Make-A-Wish wholeheartedly for making this happen. They make wishes come true and that’s phenomenal. Thank you to all the people who gave up their time and generosity."

Viv, Wish child, Willow's mum
