31st March 2020

Here at Merlin’s Magic Wand the health, safety and wellbeing of our team, beneficiaries and supporters is our number one priority. With much of the world staying at home due to COVID-19 it is trickier than ever to do what we love to support children and families right now. Many attractions are temporarily closed, meaning that Magical Days Out have to be put on hold and organisations that we work with are, rightly, focussing on essential work meaning Magic Space Projects and Magic on Tour visits have been temporarily paused.

As a result, we have taken the decision to run the charity on a reduced team for now, allowing many of the team to focus on keeping well and being home with their loved ones at this challenging time. Thank you for understanding and for bearing with us as we navigate operating the charity in this temporary format. We will continue to share the exciting activities that are happening online from Merlin attractions and will do our best to answer any queries you have.

Rest assured, we are more dedicated than ever to our mission to support children facing challenges of serious illness, disability and adversity and we look forward to ramping up our activities once again, just as soon as we are able to do so. We know that days out will be more important than ever when this is through!

Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding.

With all best wishes

The Merlin’s Magic Wand team.
