Make a wish for Christmas - episode one

We hope you enjoyed watching Make A Wish for Christmas, learning more about the inspiring children and families we work with, and the fantastic team of Wishgranters who organise wishes.

Skye, Harrison, Harry and Bella are just four of the 1,109 children and young people we have granted wishes for this year.

More and more children are turning to us each year – 60% more than before.

A group of Wishgranters gathered round a computer to read a thank you message from a wish family.

Episode 2 of Make A Wish For Christmas will air on Channel 5 at 8pm on Wed 18th Dec 2019
