WHO ARE MAKE-A-WISH

Together we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses

Make-A-Wish UK grants wishes to children and young people diagnosed with serious illness. When a child is diagnosed the simple pleasures of childhood and family life are replaced by worry, grueling treatment, financial worries and isolation.

The wish experience is designed to push back against the harsh realities. It’s totally centred around the child - whether it's starring in their own films, walking with dinosaurs, going on an amazing holiday, meeting a celebrity hero, or having a bedroom makeover; children’s wishes are varied, personal and life-changing. Every critically ill child deserves to be granted a wish and the aim is to reach every child.

“As a result of the coronavirus, right now around 1800 children are waiting for their wish. The pandemic has also affected our ability to fundraise, so we are hugely grateful to all our supporters. We are so pleased that Imagine Cruising have chosen Make-A-Wish as their charity partner for their One Life campaign. The One Life charity song and JustGiving page will help to grant more wishes to seriously ill children who desperately need that priceless, positive experience to cherish with their families.”

HELP US TO GRANT A ONE LIFE WISH

Simply download our One Life song and
proceeds will go to Make-A-Wish

With your help, we’ll be able to grant wishes to seriously ill children who desperately need priceless, positive experiences to cherish with their families.

The hope is for the campaign to raise £50,000 as sadly, the pandemic led to the suspension of applications and around 1,800 poorly children have had to wait for their wishes to be granted. Together with Make-A-Wish we are appealing to the public to download our One Life charity single and/or donate to the JustGiving page so that all the children’s wishes can be granted as soon as possible.

SO FAR, WE HAVE RAISED

SO FAR, WE HAVE RAISED

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this amazing cause.

LET'S GRANT MORE WISHES LIKE THESE

Children Make-A-Wish have helped so far

For a child fighting a critical illness, life can often be filled with endless medical appointments, gruelling treatment and long periods of time in hospital away from their friends and family – a far-cry from the carefree childhood they should be enjoying. A wish changes this. A wish lets a child look past their condition and gives them hope for the future, it provides them with confidence and precious time with their family to create memories they can all treasure forever.

GEORGE'S WISH TO GO TOBOGGANING

In 2017, George was diagnosed with Batten disease, a disorder of the nervous system that leaves children suffering cognitive impairment, seizures, and progressive loss of sight and speech. Sadly, there is no cure. And those with the condition often die in childhood.


SCOTT'S WISH TO BE A POLICE OFFICER

Scott, five, from Caithness, Scotland, was born after a healthy pregnancy but became ill with a suspected virus shortly after. However, upon arrival at hospital, a team of doctors were there to meet them. The family were told he has a condition called hypoplastic left heart syndrome, which affects normal blood flow through the heart, and they might lose him.
