We’re delighted to announce that SilverDoor has selected Make-A-Wish® UK, the charity that grants magical wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions, as its charity partner for 2015. We’ll be raising awareness and funds throughout the year for Make-A-Wish, enabling it to continue granting magical wishes to seriously ill children.
A wish can be anything from being a princess for the day, to meeting a hero or going on a once-in-a-lifetime family holiday. Whatever the child’s wish, it gives them and their family an escape from the reality of living with a life-threatening condition – creating memories to treasure forever, whatever the future may hold.
We selected Make-A-Wish as the company’s charity partner after Managing Director, Marcus Angell gave all employees the opportunity to decide which charity to support in 2015. HR & Recruitment Manager, Danielle Mahoney explains: “We let our employees vote for which charity they wanted to support and something really resonated with Make-A-Wish. It’s such a fantastic cause and we’re looking forward to working with them to create events and initiatives which will raise awareness and funds.”
Since being established in the UK in 1986, Make-A-Wish has granted over 9,000 wishes to seriously ill children and is delighted that SilverDoor are now on board to help fulfil even more. Natalie Hill, Regional Fundraising Manager at Make-A-Wish said: “We are extremely grateful to SilverDoor for supporting Make-A-Wish and fundraising to help grant more magical wishes. We have now granted over 9,000 wishes – a milestone we wouldn’t have been able to reach without the help of fantastic supporters like SilverDoor.”
