Aileen and Marcus are usually found at Make-A-Wish HQ pouring over numbers or finding out the best ways to recruit volunteers.

Aileen's our Director of Finance and Marcus is our Director of HR & Volunteering.

But this month they took on a different challenge - that involved 2 wheels a lot of hard work! Marcus and Aileen cycled for wishes on an epic journey from London to Paris. Aileen gives a day-by-day account of the (steep) ups and downs of their trip: http://bit.ly/2cIIMCv

We're telling 30 stories from our 30 years of wishgranting.

In 1996 we granted 10 year old Melanie's wish to go to Disneyland Florida. It was a time full of happy memories and had such a positive impact on the whole family.

Jenny remembers watching as her little sister grew in confidence, and told us how nice it was to have a week where they could be kids again and not worry. Read the whole story: http://bit.ly/2cWrVhl

Tegan was born with Celebral Palsy, her mum and step-dad look after her full-time with the help of night-time carers. She often gets agitated when she’s in public spaces with lots of people. She wished for a sensory bedroom. It’s somewhere she can go that makes her feel calm, read her story: http://bit.ly/TeganBedroom

Taylor's been through so much for someone so young - just after her 13th birthday she was diagnosed with cancer. The steroids that were given to her lead to her contracting AVN - which causes her to have a lot of pain in her joints. Her mum told us she's been amazing through it all - keeping a positive attitude!

A big gaming fan, Taylor's wish was to go to Rare Studios - to see how Microsoft develop their Xbox games! She's now more keen than ever to break into the gaming industry. Read her story: http://bit.ly/2biNEmf
