Children at Alton Towers smiling

We believe in putting the magic back into the lives of seriously ill, disabled and disadvantaged children.

Merlin’s Magic Wand is a worldwide charity for children and we arrange magical days out at Merlin Entertainments attractions, such as LEGOLAND Resorts®, SEA LIFE Centres and Madame Tussauds.

  • We have helped over 217,000 children and their families have magical days out
  • We deliver exciting Taking the Magic to the Children projects, bringing magic into the lives of children too unwell for a day out
  • We work with over 100 different Merlin Entertainments attractions worldwide

We couldn’t help so many children without your generosity. You can support Merlin’s Magic Wand by fundraising or donating.
