We Grant a wish for very sick children. to Create a distraction from the suffering.


On the 21st April 2024 I will be running the TCS London Marathon for the 17th time (18th if you count the Virtual).

The reason I am running London Marathon is still the same and I am looking to raise at least £1,000 for Wishes 4 Kids and that is the most important thing.

So, for anyone who doesn't know why I do this every year, please grab a drink, take a seat and read on......

I was widowed in November 2004 when Laura was knocked down and killed by a dangerous driver. In my late wife's memory, Wishes 4 Kids were kind enough to start a fund so that we could continue to raise money in Laura's name. This is the "Laura Hulbert Fund for Wishes 4 Kids". This will the 17th London Marathon I will have run for Wishes 4 Kids in a row.

Wishes 4 Kids has been created to grant a wish for children and youngsters in Leicestershire who are life limited, terminally ill, have experienced life-changing physical or emotional traumas, have suffered major abuse or are diagnosed as HIV Positive. The Charity grants wishes for those of eighteen years of age and below.

Wishes 4 Kids has already granted hundreds of wishes for local children.

Sadly, there is no magical cure for the suffering of these youngsters, however, we can all help bring a short period of respite. The time when a child has a wish granted is a moment that will be treasured by them for the rest of their life. It is also a time which parents will remember - that time when their child forgot the suffering.

So come on everyone......give a little, give a lot; but everything will make a difference to a child's life!!!

So please dig deep and donate now. We all really appreciate it.
