Sponsor a Seat to Lapland

Each December the charity charters several aircraft and enables hundreds of children to swap hospital beds for sleigh rides transporting them away from appointments, treatments and injections to the winter wonderland of Lapland on board our Santa Express flights to visit the Father Christmas.

It costs £900 to send a Wish child and guardian to Lapland and we are asking our corporate supporters to take on this challenge and set a 'SEAT' as your fundraising target.
