Since 1986 Make-A-Wish Foundation UK has been turning wishes into reality for 3 to 17 year old children suffering from life threatening conditions.

One of their key fundraising events is the annual Winter Ball, held every year in the stunning surroundings of The Dorchester Hotel in London.

Kevin Williams, Project Director, is on the organising committee of this Annual Ball, which on 30th November 2013 raised an amazing £645,000 on the night!! Kevin has been on the committee for almost 14 years and during that time has helped raise over £7 million for the charity.

There are 20,000 children and young people in the UK fighting a life-threatening condition and, in truth, none of us can really imagine what it must be like to be the parent of a child in that dreadful situation. But what we can be sure of is that having a magical wish granted can be a transformational experience for these special young people.
