Make a Wish

When a child is fighting a life-threatening condition, it has a huge impact on them and their whole family. The children Make-A- Wish support are often enduring things most of us could never imagine.

Facts about our job

  • On average, we grant approx. 3 wishes a day.
  • Since Make-A-Wish UK was established in 1986, we’ve granted the wishes of over 10,000 seriously ill children and young people.
  • Our 10,000th wish was for 10 year old Ben who’s fighting cancer. He wished to be a chef for the day!

They’re going through gruelling treatment, endless medical appointments and spending time in hospital away from their home, friends and family. A far cry from the childhood they should be enjoying.

Granting their One True Wish provides seriously ill children with hope for the future, strength to cope and resilience to fight their condition. They’re given quality time away from the daily realities of living with their condition and have the chance to make magical memories they can treasure forever – whatever their future may hold.

Over 30 more than years, Make-A- Wish has transformed the lives of more than 11,000 desperately ill children by granting their One True Wish. By giving a regular donation you can help grant these life-changing wishes. Thank you.
