School testimonial

“We felt that Winston’s Wish was the perfect fit for Charity of the Year at our school. There were so many exciting things to be a part of and the kids loved the variety of activities. We felt that it really was a two way partnership, with support from Winston’s Wish representative Chloe who came in to explain to the children what their fundraising efforts would help to achieve.”
