Run For When You Wish Upon A Star

In 2020 we will be celebrating 30 years of granting magical Wishes - be part of the magic!
Scottish Registered Charity When You Wish Upon a Star has a simple and magical mission: “To grant the wishes of children aged 4-17 who live with a life threatening illness”.

 Why we grant a Wish

We firmly believe every child deserves to smile. The magic of Wishes is that they provide time away for our Wish children and their families, giving them something to look forward to during exceptionally difficult times in their lives. A Wish gives a child a chance of escapism from their day to day routine of hospital appointments and treatments and allows a child to put their illness on hold as they have fun with their family and make life long and precious memories together.

A Wish has the power to transform their lives, offering excitement and something to focus on.
Our Wishes can be anything from seeing Marvel Live in Glasgow and The Nutcracker Ballet in Edinburgh. Or trips to Lego Land, Lapland, Disney World Florida and to meet The Voice UK judges; Will I Am, Tom Jones, Olly Murs and Jennifer Hudson.
You're fundraising will help to grant the incredible Wishes we have so far in 2020 including trips to New York, Los Angeles and meeting Micky & Minnie at Euro Disney.
It is only with your help and generosity that we are able to continue granting Wishes for our inspirational Wish children across Scotland. Your support means the world to us and our Wish Children and their families!
