Make-A-Wish Ireland needs your support this Christmas to help children believe in magic

Make-A-Wish Ireland is supported by SPAR

You can make a massive difference in a child's life this Christmas.


It's no secret that 2020 has been a challenging year for many. When it comes to the important work charities do, it's heartbreaking to see fundraising events cancelled and many charities in Ireland are feeling the effects of this in the run-up to Christmas.

Make-A-Wish Ireland is a truly wonderful charity that grants wishes to hundreds of seriously ill children in Ireland each year. A wish granted is true magic for the child, providing respite from their normal routines of hospitals, doctors and treatment.

What drives people on in times of hardships is undoubtedly seeing others come together to help those in need and Make-A-Wish Ireland are looking for the public's help to bring magic to children who need it most this Christmas. Wishes can only happen with the support and generosity of the general public as Make-A-Wish Ireland do not receive any government funding.

Despite these difficulties, Make-A-Wish remains committed to delivering magical wishes to children living with serious illnesses such as cancer, cystic fibrosis and heart conditions. Among the wishes granted this year, they built Joshua his dream garden playhouse and granted Tadgh’s birthday wish to meet his musical hero, Nathan Carter.

Make-A-Wish is hoping this Christmas appeal will help them grant the wishes of more than 200 sick children who rely on their service and are anxiously waiting for their magical wishes to come true.
