Make A Wish launches Light up the Darkness campaign

Jason Suckley, Chief Executive of the children’s charity Make-A-Wish UK talks about an ambitious new campaign to grant wishes for the tens of thousands of children who are living with critical illness across the UK.

The Children’s charity Make-A-Wish UK is launching an ambitious new campaign called Light up the Darkness, to grant wishes for the tens of thousands of children who are living with critical illness across the UK.

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a catastrophic impact on the charity’s ability to grant wishes, resulting in a 40 per cent reduction in income and with restrictions leaving thousands of children waiting for their wishes to be granted.

And as restrictions have lifted, the charity has seen referrals for rush and priority wishes more than double.
