Having a great time and raising money for a good cause. What’s not to love?

Special Effect are transforming the lives of people with physical challenges right across the world through the innovative use of technology. At the core of this mission is their work to optimise inclusion, enjoyment and quality of life by helping people control video games to the best of their abilities for as long as they need them.

Wishes take time and money to organise. They require creativity, passion and commitment. Make-A-Wish’s networks and communities – health and social care professionals, volunteers, partners, fundraisers, supporters, wish families – are key to making children’s wishes become a reality.

Whether you’re looking for yourself, a member of your family, or your child, Guide Dogs’ experts can help you find ways to live actively, independently and well with sight loss.
