“The Willow Foundation does a brilliant job and I
am delighted to support it. When you talk to people who
have enjoyed special days you quickly realise the benefits
these days bring.”
David Seaman, Willow Foundation Patron and
former Arsenal, Manchester City and England goalkeeper
“The Willow Foundation is a tribute
to the spirit of optimism. It brings such pleasure to young
people and their families, and helps them to shake off the
shadow of serious illness - if only for the day.”
Mary Nightingale, Willow Foundation Patron
and ITV newscaster.
What is the Willow Foundation?
The Willow Foundation is a charity dedicated
to improving the quality of life of seriously ill adults
aged 16 to 40 by organising and funding a ‘special
day’ of their choice.
What is a special day?
Special days give young people with life-threatening
or life-limiting conditions a chance to escape the difficulties
of their daily routine and share quality time with family
and friends while pursuing an activity they can all enjoy.
A special day could be a trip to a health farm or a visit
to a pop concert; an afternoon of Premiership football or
a flight on the British Airways London Eye. The Willow Foundation’s
aim is to be able to arrange a special day of their choice
for every seriously ill young adult in the UK.
