Desperately ill local children need your help.

Why wishes are so important
When a child is fighting a life-threatening condition, their future is uncertain. Their whole family’s world is turned upside down.
That's why wishes are so important. Once their most cherished wish is granted, a child will see that anything is possible. It gives them and their family the emotional strength they desperately need to fight their condition and hope to face their future – whatever it might hold.
But more children than ever before are turning to us for a wish – nearly twice as many as last year. To ensure we don’t have to turn an eligible child away, we urgently need your ongoing support.
Not only will you be helping the record numbers of children turning to us now – you’ll be changing the lives of those who turn to us in the future.
Children like Zach need your help
Zach was diagnosed with an incurable brain disease when he was 6 years old. He endured months of gruelling chemotherapy, radiotherapy and had two bone marrow transplants. At one point, doctors were going to put him into a coma because he was so weak.
Tragically, Zach’s mum told us that Zach believed he was going to die.
Whilst Zach was in isolation he found an escape from this nightmare in the video game Minecraft. That’s why his wish to have a Minecraft themed bedroom has had such an incredible impact on him, making him feel happy and calm.
The room has notable emotional benefits – he is much happier and more content at home
Zach's mum Sarah told us that Zach's wish "has helped give closure to the treatment he had."
Zach even told us: "When I'm in bed I feel like I'm in the clouds and I feel so happy in my room!"
Please donate today and help more children like Zach get their wishes.
