All children have Wishes but for these children and their families that Wish is so much more precious and for the duration of their Wish, these children are able to forget about hospital routines, doctors, gruelling treatments and have the chance to smile, laugh and enjoy life like any other child.
Wishes are varied and far reaching. For some it is a trip to Disneyland in Florida or Paris to meet their favourite characters and for others it is the chance to get up close to a favourite pop star of sporting hero. Some children just want books or toys, whilst others want a computer to catch up on school work or keep in touch with their friends. Whatever the Wish, wherever possible, When You Wish Upon a Star will aim to make that Wish come true.
Maggie Falconer East Midlands Regional Fundraiser commented:
"In 2014 the Charity will again be taking hundreds of Wish children on a very magical trip to Lapland to meet the real Father Christmas, which is one of the biggest highlights for the charity and we could not organise such trips without your help!
It costs the charity £90,000 to charter our Santa Express flight, each child and guardian/parent costing £900.
We are delighted that Hudson Wealth Management Ltd have adopted When You Wish Upon a Star as their chosen charity for 2014 raising funds which will go towards our magical Lapland trip in December."
