View When You Wish Upon a Star WebsiteButler Reynolds Ltd are delighted to announce they have chosen “When You Wish Upon a Star”  as the lucky charity to receive the proceeds from their Grand Raffle of a Bobcat E10z excavator (market value of £15,000) which they are donating as the main prize.  We are hoping to raise £20,000 for the charity who due to Covid-19 have over 130 Wishes on hold for children living with a life threatening illness.

When You Wish Upon a Star has a simple mission, to grant the Wishes of children living with a life threatening illness. The charity was founded in Nottingham by Barbara White who was so inspired by a seriously ill four year old with a dream to meet Mickey Mouse that she wanted to bring smiles to the faces of many more brave and courageous children. Our Wishes have the power to transform the lives of the children and families we work with and since 1990 we have proudly granted over 17,500 Wishes across the UK.

Alexa Wigfield, Regional Fundraiser at When You Wish Upon a Star said ‘It was lovely to receive the telephone call from Nigel Long and Heather Tormey the Directors at Butler Reynolds with this amazing news, they recognise that 2020 was such a difficult year for lots of families, they felt it was time to support a charity that brings a little happiness to so many children. To receive a donation of this size will help us to continue granting magical Wishes. All children have Wishes but for these children and their families that Wish is so precious. Each Wish brings with it the opportunity to look forward to something very special, to forget about their often painful treatments and to simply be a child for the day, creating special treasured memories.
