Lincolnshire & Yorkshire

Lincolnshire & YorkshireSince the regional base was formed in 1995 by a family of volunteers with a disabled child themselves, the charity’s Wish granting and fundraising scope has grown year-on-year.  That growth has been made possible by local people, businesses and organisations who have literally helped us to make thousands of special dreams possible within our community.  We constantly fundraise – often against the clock – to make a child’s dream come true while time allows us to.

Each year, we offer many events for people to join in with, and provide event support for those who wish to organise their own or undertake a sponsored personal challenge.

The reality is, ever more children come to our attention who are very deserving and really do need something special to look forward to in their lives whilst undergoing harsh, and often, very painful treatments.  With your help we can make that happen, please get in touch with us soon.
