MAKE A WISH

STUDENT CONCERT

MAKE A WISH

The charity which supports terminally-ill children and their last wishes.

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

 

Whether it's starring in their own films, walking with dinosaurs, going on a family holiday, meeting a celebrity hero, or having a bedroom makeover; our wishes are varied, personal and life-changing.

We go above and beyond to make a child’s One True Wish a reality at a time when they need it most. A child's life shouldn't be about illness, hospitals and diagnosis - it should be about wonder, joy and hope.  We've seen the effects a wish can have on a seriously ill child. We know what wishes can give, and this is the driving force behind why we continue to do what we do.

But we can't make these life-changing experiences happen without the generosity of people like you.
