Story

Thank you for visiting my fund raising page.

Please dig deep and sponsor me online.- I am currently going to Liverpool on 1st December 2012, and i will be staying in a haunted place over night. in aid of WYWUS, the idea is i am sponsored to do this....... 

The first mission is Lapland

I am trying to raise £75,000 to send 100 poorly children to visit the real Santa in Lapland.

I manged to raise the £75,000, By December 2008, so that meant I could send 100 very poorly children to visit Santa in Lapland. Thank you for all your help and support in this. 

 

BUT NOW

I am trying raise £100,000, for 30/45 families and the poorly child to have a five day brake at Centre Parc's, Sherwood Forest. This 5 day brake will give the families of the poorly child some quality time together away from the hospital. I want the week to be filled with fun and adventures for the children and there families, an holiday to remember.

 

Why give them a wish?
Some of these children don't have very long with us and having a wish granted for them really does give these children something to look forward too.

 

I have been, I know what it is like!
I have been one of them children to have a wish granted so I know how much it helps and knowing my wish was going to come true helped me cope with a very difficult year.

 

My Dream

My dream now is to make wishes come true for other poorly children while they still have some quality of life left to enjoy the experience. To read more about me and the charity please go to my web site www.kirstysstory.co.uk


Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to sponsor me: When You Wish Upon A Star will receive your money faster and, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.
So please sponsor me now and help a child's dream come true.

Many thanks for your support.
