Owning a spa pool is one of the many types of wishes that Make-A-Wish grant to children fighting life-threatening conditions.
These spa pool wishes can be enjoyed by the whole family and provide many physical and emotional benefits for seriously ill children, particularly those with limited movement due to neurological conditions and muscle diseases. Here’s a list of the many benefits!
We’re excited to announce we have been supported by The Kentown Wizard Foundation, a charity which focuses on children and young adults who are living with a serious illness or disability, with an incredible donation of £200,000!
This year, more than ever, we really need your help.
Our purpose is simple. We grant magical wishes to enrich the lives of children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions. In the 30 years since we began in the UK, over 10,000 children have had their one true wish made a reality.
With our Sports Dinner just around the corner, we're taking a look at the magical impact sporty wishes have on the children that receive them. We've rounded up 7 wishes that show just how much sport can transform the lives of seriously ill children.
1. Benji's unbeatable Barcelona wish comes true
Benji's leg completely gave way during a game of football and his parents took him straight to A&E. They had no idea they were about to be told their little boy had a tumour above his right knee. He endured 10 months of chemotherapy and surgery - he's made a good recovery but sadly, he won't be able to play football again. To lift his spirits and give him something to look forward to, his family applied for a wish and he chose to see a top team play in Barcelona. Read his story.
