Wish Upon a Star

Wish Upon a Star for Winston’s Wish

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 would 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.

£25 would fund the cost of one helpline call with a trained practitioner.  Our Freephone National Helpline offers guidance, information and support to anyone caring for a bereaved child.

£100 would enable us to provide 7 families with specialist publications that help them to understand childhood bereavement and offer support for a grieving child.
