Three wishes for the future of all children


These are the three wishes we wish for everyone.

The Wishing Foundation has a basic principle of wishing to help, and believing strongly enough in others as a collective mass, that wishes really can come true.

We believe, that in our world, even though there is an enormous amount of hardship, suffering and deprivation, so too there is a most amazing amount of goodwill, generosity and kindness.  It is the alchemy of these two factors that brings about the magic in The Wishing Foundation.

We are all unique, and so we have different needs, dependent on our age, geography, health and a myriad of other factors.  For this reason, we often have additional needs and wishes, and The Wishing Foundation also works towards such individual goals for a range of special needs and causes.

The Wishing Foundation specialises in working with the most vulnerable groups we can identify and most of our work is carried out for children.


Every year, millions of people kindly donate to charities. However, there are hundreds and thousands of disadvantaged groups out there. Amongst the ones you will have heard of are the main popular charities who can afford to run large campaigns, and therefore raise their profile, awareness and even more donations. The drawback with this is that often your donation has to cover high overheads and wages for a large staff and infrastructure before any of it makes its way to the actual cause.

In contrast, disadvantaged groups who rely heavily on volunteers and have limited resources cannot afford to promote themselves sufficiently or to run the campaigns required to bring in the donations they so desperately need.

We work with disadvantaged groups who could not otherwise afford to run campaigns. As a result not only can these disadvantaged groups become better known, but the funds we make available for them go a long way, and on a far more direct route to their causes, since there is no big infrastructure to sustain along the way.

We run special campaigns throughout the year, as well as competitions, community events, general promotions and a facility to donate direct,

We specialise in our amazing charity events run at Aldborough Hall, home of The Wishing Foundation.
