Make-A-Wish Foundation UK has a very simple objective â€“ to grant magical wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening illnesses. The charity was founded in the UK in 1986 and since then has granted over 5,300 wishes. Our wishes are truly magical. A small and dedicated team of professional wishgranters work alongside hundreds of volunteers to turn our childrenâ€™s wishes into reality. Whether a wish is to be a princess or a policeman for a day, own the latest computer equipment, meet a favourite celebrity or just enjoy some special time away from home with their family, a wish come true brings so much to a childâ€™s life and provides memories for the family that last a lifetime.
