A schoolboy from Warwick has adopted the spirit of Sir Captain Tom Moore by running 62 miles around Hatton Park for Molly Olly’s Wishes. William Colegate ran two miles every day for a month starting on 17th January. His original plan was to raise £500, the typical cost of one of our wishes for a child with a life-threatening or life-limiting illness. But Will has been so successful with encouraging donations, including an appearance on BBC Midlands Today, that he upped his target to £2,500 and his total is now £2,696. You can still donate if you wish by following this linkFebruary 19, 2021 at 3:16 pm | News | No comment

Be in with a chance to win £500! See how far you can you get your personally designed balloon to fly by choosing the shape, thickness, colour and design of your virtual balloon and track its flight when it’s released from Santa’s Village in Lapland on Christmas Day.
For just £3 a go, you could be in with a shot of winning £500 cash or an Apple iPad, or 10 prizes of £10 book tokens for runners up. To join in go to Christmas Balloon , buy a balloon or a code to give to someone else – a great stocking filler and way to keep the whole family entertained. The event is being run by Redditch Kingfisher and Knowle and Dorridge Rotary Clubs, with proceeds being divided equally between Molly Olly’s Wishes and Redditch Kingfisher Public Access Defibrillator Project.
Wondering how to entertain the children throughout December? Well look no further – we want to spread a little bit of Christmas cheer and magic and so invite you and your little ones to take part in our Olly The Brave Christmas Treasure Trail. The Trail will take place around Warwick Town Centre from Friday 4th December until Tuesday 29th December. Your job is to find all the cuddly lion Ollys who will be sitting in various shop or business windows and will be dressed up for Christmas. Each will have a letter of the alphabet which you need to collect to make a word – correct entries will be entered into a draw to win a giant Olly The Brave. You can get involved over as many days as you like. You do not need to enter the shops or offices to find Olly.
The Treasure trail is FREE but if you would like to donate to our charity, we would be extremely grateful. As you can imagine this year has been extremely difficult for us, as our fundraising has significantly reduced but we are seeing a massive increase in wishes and children requiring Olly The Brave therapeutic lions and books to help explain their journey. All the children that we help have life-threatening or life-limiting illnesses. Anything you can give to help Olly The Brave and Molly Olly’s Wishes support these children and their families through their darkest days would be extremely gratefully received.News | No comment

Be brave, watch this film and understand why it matters.
The team at Molly Olly’s are very grateful for all the support we receive, but more importantly so are the children and families that we help. But don’t just take our word for it – here is a wish we made come true at Christmas last year for a very special boy and his beautiful family. It was so important to them as it was to be Rhys’s last Christmas. This was filmed the month before, sadly, Rhys died.November 23, 2020 at 11:08 am | News | No comment
