Every year, the Ambulance Wish Foundation holds the Best of York Festival. It's a great day for all the family with live music, games and crafts. And, the money raised helps fulfil amazing final wishes for those nearing the end of life. Due to Covid, the 2020 Festival had to be postponed, but we hope to announce the new venue and date very soon!

We are now asking for your help to raise money to hold the festival, as our usual fundraisers had to be cancelled due to the pandemic. We want to make our next festival the biggest and best yet in order to give the community something to look forward to after many difficult months, and to raise further funds for our charity.

From 25/10/20, you can support us for FREE if you live in the York area through the Co-op Local Community Fund. Simply sign up for a Co-op card and selecting the Ambulance Wish Foundation as your charity when you log in online. Every time you scan your card, the Co-op will make a donation to us on your behalf.
You can also donate directly at

Please help us provide for the community by showing your support. We hope to see you all soon!

Hold on to sunny summer memories with pebble magnets!

Today is world dream day!

A global initiative aimed at helping the world reach its full potential. We are a global movement supporting dreamers to move forward with their dreams and by doing so make the world a better place.

There’s something about the sticky texture and fragrant taste of lokum (Turkish delight) that makes it truly special to devour. Real lokum is usually made with gelatine, but this recipe uses cream of tartar instead so the whole thing is vegan friendly!
