When I was asked to write a piece about my involvement with the Ambulance Wish Foundation for their ‘24 Days of Christmas’, I didn’t give it a second thought. Of course I would!
I have taken part in two extraordinary sporting challenges to raise money for the AWF and have also volunteered for several wishes. So where do I start?
Want to support the Ambulance Wish Foundation but you're unsure where to start? This post summarises some of the easiest ways you can support us and help us grow as a charity!
We know this year has been tough, so we want to help you to help us. As well as donating there is a lot that you can do to help us without spending money. Read on for more details.
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 https://www.paypal.com/gb/fundraiser/charity/3232736
Please help us provide for the community by showing your support. We hope to see you all soon!
