Granting wishes for terminally ill children
Posted on 17th December 2018 at 16:23
The team at The Promotion Company (TPC) first came across When You Wish Upon a Star ten years ago when a little girl, known to the family was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour.
During this devastating time, the charity provided much-needed support and helped the family to make lasting memories.
Seeing the benefits When You Wish Upon a Star offers to families, TPC became involved to help raise vital funds so it can continue with its important work.
Over the last ten years, with support from friends, family and business colleagues TPC has raised over £15,500. This has included the sponsorship of a reindeer (soft toy) which is an annual commitment to raise money throughout the year.
The team also attends the charity’s annual ball and purchased tickets for a journey on the Northern Belle, sending money direct to the charity.
Angela Oldroyd, Director of The Promotion Company says:
“The most fulfilling part of supporting When You Upon a Star is helping out on the Santa Express trips and spending time with the children. It makes you realise how precious life is and you appreciate the difficulties some families go through.”
“The Santa Express is such a happy event and it is great to see the children smiling and having fun and this is the reason each year we continue to support When You Wish Upon a Star.”
Joanne Wright Regional Manager of When You Wish Upon Star says:
“Our charity mission is to grant the wishes of children living with life threatening illness. To do this we rely on donations and fund-raising events organised by local people. Angela Oldroyd and her team at The Promotion Company are long-standing supporters and each year they come up with new ways to raise money for us - always putting on a good show for their guests!”
“We are so grateful for this continued support as the money raised helps us to take terminally ill children to Lap Land, Disneyland and Centerparcs, to swim with dolphins, visits to Google’s Headquarters, provide computer equipment, meet favourite celebrities and so much more.”
“I am pleased to hear that Angela gets so much out of supporting us and by helping at our events, this shows its more than a one-way street and I would like to thank Angela and her team for everything they have done to help our charity continue.”
