There are many ways to help Molly Olly’s Wishes help children with life-threatening illnesses in addition to making a donation or leaving a legacy. Some suggestions are given here.
Please get involved and help!
Molly Olly’s Wishes always needs prizes or gifts which can be used to raise funds through auctions, raffles etc. We hold a large Ball most years for around 500 guests with meal, entertainment and live and silent auctions with about 40 lots, which is an important fundraising event for us. We also hold a Golf Day each year, which includes an auction, and run various raffles from time to time. Donated items for these auctions and raffles help us considerably by removing the need to buy items.
We are grateful for a wide range of gifts including physical items such as sporting memorabilia, jewellery etc, or experiences e.g. tickets, overnight stays, meals, golf course rounds, loan of a holiday home for a week (if you are lucky enough to have one!).
We are always happy to give publicity to our donors in recognition of their gift.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss any ideas you have.

Molly Olly’s Wishes team is mostly made up of volunteers and we are always grateful for further volunteer help, especially for fundraising events. We are flexible and can accommodate help for specific events or on particular days, or on a longer term basis.
If you would like to volunteer for the Charity please contact Rachel on email@example.com, setting out what your availability is.
In limited circumstances we can also offer work experience, although this is not possible during the current COVID pandemic.
Molly Olly’s Wishes needs as many people as possible to talk about our Charity and the seriously unwell children that we help. The more people who know about us, the more funds we can hopefully raise. And even more importantly, the more families trying to deal with the horrendously difficult situation of having a child with a life-threatening illness hear about us, the more families can ask for help – every day 12 children are diagnosed with cancer and more with other rare and serious conditions and illnesses.
Every like, post, tweet/retweet or conversation you have about Molly Olly’s Wishes could be make the difference for a parent or child dealing with the most unimaginable circumstances.
