Make-A-Wish fundraising volunteer Hannah Poynton is urging people to volunteer for the charity’s national fundraising day, ‘Wish Day’ on Friday 13th March. Volunteers will be collecting donations for the charity that grants the wishes of children living with life-threatening illnesses. Making wishes come true can have a hugely positive impact on a child and their families, giving strength, hope and joy. Research shows that children who have wishes granted are more likely to build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a serious illness.

Last year Make-A-Wish granted wishes for 4 children in Limerick and a further 177 across Ireland.

The charity grant wishes to seriously ill children and let them experience something very magical and memorable.

Make-A-Wish does not receive any government funding and is solely dependent on the generosity of the public to continue granting wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses in Ireland.

Make-A-Wish Ireland Chief Executive, Susan O’Dwyer said, “To date, we have granted more than 2,600 wishes for Irish children. This would not be possible without the support of the Irish public, but we need your help to continue granting wishes.

“If you could spare a couple of hours on Friday, you will be making a life-changing difference to a seriously ill child and their family, in your community.” she added.
