It gave us some quality time together, which is what we have desperately needed for a long time.
Special days for seriously ill young adults aged 16 to 40


“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.
