We are excited to announce that we have chosen the Make-A-Wish Foundation as our charity partners!
Make-A-Wish works to create life-changing wishes for critically ill children; their One True Wish made a reality at a time when they need it most.
From meeting celebrities, swimming with dolphins, and going on holiday, to being a superhero for the day, walking with dinosaurs, and even having a bedroom makeover, Make-A-Wish go above and beyond to make sure that each wish is personalised and life-changing to each individual and their families.
When a child is critically ill, the effects that these wishes can have on a child bring back the wonder, joy, and hope into their lives, whilst also building confidence, creating memories of a lifetime, as well as providing the necessary respite from the daily struggles of living with a serious illness.
Our goal will be to work closely with the charity and a chosen family in order to make their One True Wish come true, and our teams have been incredibly forthcoming with plenty of fantastic fundraising ideas to put in place over the next few months.
Speaking about the charity partnership, our Director Paul Kitley says: “We have been planning to do something where we can give back to the community for a while, but with so many charities out there it was hard picking one to support. We chose Make-A-Wish because they really do help put smiles on the faces of vulnerable children who have had the worst luck in life. We want to raise as much money as possible and help this amazing charity make some of these wishes come true.”
Of course, none of these wishes could come true without the help of donations and sponsors, so if you’d like to help us raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, please visit our JustGiving page.
