Winston's Wish

We support bereaved children to help them achieve their full potential.

Charity Registration No. 1061359

Story

In November a very dear friend of ours passed away suddenly, Graham Hollows.  He was married to Towe who Nikki and I went to University in York with (those of you who were at our wedding will probably remember him) and we subsequently became even closer over the years as life progressed and we both had children.  Many nights we spent at each other houses drinking and then falling asleep in the chair! Graham was an inspiration, and a wonderful man, and he and Towe have three children (Aila 5, Leiva, 3 and baby number 3 due in March) who will need lots of help and support to come to terms with life without daddy.  Winstsons Wish is a charity that specialises in helping bereaved children, they offer support and guidance and focus on trying to rebuild life for a positive future.  Towe and Graham’s children are wonderful and so amazing in how they are dealing with the situation they tragically find themselves in, but, they will need help at times and I hope that helping Winstons Wish will go some way to ensuring that help is there for them, and others suffering the same.
