About Us

The Childrens Xmas Wish List started approx 5 years ago, we held a dinner / auction at the Crown Inn, Stockton in Warwickshire which looking back on it was a brilliant evening as we hired a Marquee which we set up on the carpark, sold 200 tickets and raised £5000,

We then asked sick Children in Coventry & Warwickshire with Cancer & other life threatening illnesses what they would like whilst they are being treated for there illnesses, the list was endless and there is no better feeling than giving Sick Children presents they want and seeing smiles all round

We have moved on since then and hold different annual events each year, in 2009 we held a St Patrick’s day golf day which was another enjoyable day raising approx £4000 Then we held another golf day in October raising another £3500

In 2010 we were finding it hard to ask people to take time out of work  and spend cash whilst trying to raise funds for the children, due to the recession and many people losing there jobs etc, So my wife Becky and I decided to do a sponsored Skydive instead, yes 13000 ft, what an awesome feeling, we raised between us just under £6000.  I then decided to organise a Christmas Dinner evening / Bash at the Royal Court Hotel in Coventry which again sold 242 tickets raising just over £4000 on the evening, we were lucky to have had Bob Hall from Sky Sports to host our Auction & Raffle on the evening,

2011 is a big year for myself, James Pease & Nathan Baines, who are both from the Coventry Blaze Ice Hockey Team, we are jetting off to climb Kilimanjaro on the 1st December, training has already started for us and you can follow us on our blogs on the web site,

You can also help us by donating on the link,  you will see on the home page to the  just giving website we have set up to take care of any cash we raise between us which will go straight to the charity account

I have also arranged for us to repeat the Christmas Dinner at the Royal Court Hotel in Coventry on the 18th December, tickets will be available later in the year but anybody wishing to join us as there Company Christmas Bash are more than welcome

I would like to thank you all for taking the time to read all about what we are doing on an annual basis for the Very Sick Children In Coventry & Warwickshire

Kindest Regards from all the trustee’s
