Winston’s Wish supports young people as they go through one of the hardest periods of their lives when they’ve lost a loved one.
They’ve given The Marketing Practice eight wishes of their own, from finding them a corporate partner to marketing one of their biggest national initiatives.
In September 2016, we hope to help them transform how they fundraise and support more children in the future.
The Footsteps mission is to “Help children with the determination and the dream to move like their friends, but who lack the physical ability to do so.”
Based in Wallingford, Oxfordshire, they offer an innovative, intense form of physiotherapy that children with disabilities can’t access anywhere else in the UK.
Every penny raised for them goes to supporting families that ordinarily wouldn’t be able to afford for their kids to go through the treatment. Which is why we put together Chains for Change: a mission to cycle 175 miles in a day to raise money.
19-20 November 2014
One in every 500 people in the UK has Parkinson’s. We were inspired by the story of some of those fighting to find a cure. To “Stop the PD clock”. And we were particularly inspired by a video from the South London Younger Parkinson’s Network (SLYPN).
On 19-20 November 2014, we held a 24-hour table football marathon to raise money for the cause. But it didn’t stop there. We held a big launch event, with the support of special guests The Cheeky Girls. The whole thing raised over £10,000 for Parkinson’s UK and the SLYPN.
