Organise a Fancy Coffee and Cake? event and help raise money for When You Wish Upon A Star (WYWUAS).

The annual event encourages people of all ages to get together for some quality time, put the kettle on and show support for WYWUAS.

The funds raised from May 9, to 15, goes towards granting the wishes of children living with life threatening illnesses, creating special memories for the children and their families during a difficult time.

Regional fundraising manager, Nicola Brien said: “Anyone can get involved in Fancy Coffee and Cake? You can bake, buy or appeal for sweet donations and invite friends, family and colleagues to join you.

“There are so many ways to get involved. Why not have a Madhatter’s tea party or bake off? There is no need to stop at cake either, as long as you get together and have fun.

“The funds raised from your events will help us to continue granting wishes for seriously ill children, which is at the heart of everything we do. It is thanks to the funds raised by our supporters, we are able to grant children’s wishes all year round.It doesn’t matter how much you raise- all donations are gratefully accepted and it is a great way to bring people together and make a real difference to a child in need.”

WYWUAS hosts a number of fundraising initiatives throughout the year, encouraging people to have fun and raise much needed funds helping to grant wishes.

Nicola added: “Fancy Coffee and Cake? events can take place anywhere, whether at your house, school, workplace or university, it is a great way to bring people together and make a positive impact on children across the country at a time when they need it most.”
