About Us

Little girl dressed as a princess on her wish

Make-A-Wish® UK grants magical wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions. Since being established in the UK in 1986, Make-A-Wish has turned more than 9,000 wishes into magical realities.

 A wish can be a light in dark days. The wish children are often going through, or have been going through, gruelling treatments and sometimes several operations. They have often spent days, weeks or even months in hospital separated from their families, friends and homes. A wish provides time away with their family, giving them precious memories that will last forever – whatever the future holds.

Our online shop allows you to purchase charity Christmas cards in the run up to Christmas and Wish Maker gifts (our range of virtual gifts) all year round. All profits from these items will help us grant magical wishes - like Lois's wish to be a princess. Thanks to people like you we were able to grant her wish. Please fill up your shopping cart and help us grant lots more wishes to children just like her.
