Nominated Charity – Make-A-Wish
Make-A-Wish grants wishes to children who are battling life-threatening illnesses. When a child is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, life can seem very cruel. But when a wish is granted, the kindness of a community can transform the way a child and their family see the world and can give them hope, strength and joy in facing the challenges ahead. Most wishes fall into one of four categories: “I wish to go to”, “I wish to be”, “I wish to meet” or “I wish to have”. A wish gives a child the opportunity to be the centre of attention for all the right reasons, it allows them to be a child again and reminds them that it is not the illness that makes them special.
