Homeless person WISHES FOR

10 hot or cold takeaway drinks


Your donation will pay for 10 BillyChips, which can be redeemed for food and drink at any participating outlet.

BillyChip®️ Foundation registered charity 1188779 was set up in 2018 to continue the legacy of Billy Abernethy-Hope a twenty-year-old ambulance driver from Bristol who was the inspiration and idea behind the BillyChip®️. After helping support the homeless at Christmas, Billy felt disheartened at how little support the general public gave to local homeless people. Many people donate to charity on a regular basis but Billy was surprised what a small percentage of donations were given directly to people living rough on our streets. Turns out most people are apprehensive to give money directly to homeless people because it's not possible to know how a donation is spent.

Unfortunately, the common perception is the money will be used for alcohol, drugs or cigarettes. Even if a donation of food or drink is given to safeguard your donation, it is very awkward as people have to make assumptions of what the person would like and when. The alternative is to engage with that person, ask the question and purchase what’s required which many feel uncomfortable doing. Billy recognized that the likelihood of someone having the time, inclination, courage, and kindness to engage with a homeless person to buy them food or drink was too big a challenge. That was the eureka moment when he first thought up the concept of the BillyChip®️. Sadly Billy never got to launch the BillyChip as planned due to his untimely death whilst backpacking in Thailand.


Child with cancer WISHES FOR

Art and craft materials


Childhood cancer is the most common medical cause of death of children in the UK. Every year, just under 4,000 children and young adults receive this life changing diagnosis. The Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust is working to raise awareness of childhood cancer and the signs and symptoms with which it may present. We produce educational resources for parents and clinicians, provide support to families and fund research into rare cancers of childhood. The Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust was founded in memory of 4 year old Grace Kelly who passed away in 2014. The vision of the Trust was born from the inspiration that Grace imparted on the people she met. Grace was a compassionate and caring little girl, who looked after others before herself. We are making a difference to other children whilst fulfilling Grace's wish of helping others. Because The Children Of Today All Deserve A Tomorrow

The Harvey Hext Trust WISHES FOR

Bespoke Memory box and a Memory bear for a bereaved child


We provide large A4 bespoke, personalised, Memory boxes of exceptional quality to help bereaved children remember someone who has died. When you lose a child there is often very little support for the bereaved sibling. The Memory boxes are a very simple, but effective way of helping a sibling remember their brother or sister and preserve their very precious and personal memories. The Child has full control over the design process and choosesa background theme and colour for their memory boxes. The photos are also chosen by the children and when the design has been aproved by the child it is digitally printed and heat sealed onto the Memory box. The designing of the Memory boxes is often used as a therapy by many bereavement services across the UK and every child in the family designs and receives their own Memory box so that the box belongs to them and only them.

We do not charge for our service as we are fully self funded.

Please note: Our large A4 wooden Memory boxes and bears are only supplied  to bereaved children under the age of 25yrs..

families of children with cancer in financial crisis WISHES FOR

a hardship grant to help us out


We have families in financial crisis. £150 will enable us to make one of those families a hardship grant to help them out. 

Our hardship grants are brand new, and we haven't properly launched them yet. Granting this wish will help us help others. 

Our mission is to enable families to make memories together through play and having fun. This will also enable the children and their families to experience precious moments of ‘normality’, which are too often taken for granted by most of us.

We provide grants to families affected by childhood cancer to enable them to buy play equipment or fund days out with their children. We also provide the play teams in the Children’s Oncology wards in Leeds Children’s Hospital (where Fletcher was treated), Great North Children’s Hospital in Newcastle and Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital with Arts and Crafts bags to be given to children in isolation.
