Wish Upon a Star
This year, thousands of children face their first Christmas without Mum or Dad.
Winston’s Wish supports children and young people after the death of a parent or sibling – the most fundamental loss they will ever face.
Will you Wish Upon a Star and help us to support bereaved children this Christmas and throughout the year?
To participate please scroll down and complete the form.
Our wish this year is to raise £15,000 with Wish Upon a Star, to help fund our vital work.
Here’s how your star donation will help to support bereaved children and their families:
£5 could pay for Winston’s Wish candles that we use in the candlelight ceremony at our day groups, helping each child to share a special memory about the person in their life who died.
£30 could fund a special memory box for 2 children attending one of our day groups, helping them to talk about and remember the person who has died.
£100 could enable us to provide 7 families with specialist publications that help them to understand childhood bereavement and offer support for a grieving child.
£500 could fund our Freephone National Helpline for one day. Our Helpline receives calls from families and professionals seeking advice on how best to support a bereaved child.
This year, we’re offering a new opportunity for organisations to sponsor a star to cover the cost of running the Helpline for either a full or half day during the holiday season. If you are interested in sponsorship, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
