Over the years we have met some of the bravest Wish Children from all over Scotland who have been a true inspiration to us here in the Scotland office, and it is only through the donations from our supporters that we have been in the privileged position to create some of the most magical memories for those children and their families to cherish.

For us to be able to grant every Wish from children that is requested, we rely solely on your support and as a team we are committed to working at all levels of fundraising whether it is on an individual basis, working within the community or with a corporate partnership developing new and exciting fundraising ideas.

Throughout the year we also give our supporters the opportunity to take part in our own exciting fundraising events which you will find details of on our events page.

It is only with your support that we are able to continue granting magical Wishes, making a real difference to the lives of some of our amazing children living with a life threatening illness throughout Scotland.
