We put the magic back into the childhoods of seriously ill, disabled and disadvantaged children.
We make this happen by arranging magical days out at Merlin Entertainments attractions, such as LEGOLAND Resort® theme parks, SEA LIFE Centres and Madame Tussauds.
On our magical days out, families have a chance to create long-lasting memories and take valuable time out from stressful daily routine.
In the last year we have helped over 75,000 children and their families. Read a selection of their stories below.
We can't do this without you - see how you can help or donate now.
