The first charity to receive a donation from Tisski in 2021 was Wishes 4 Kids. They grant wishes for young people living in Leicestershire who are life limited, terminally ill, have experienced life-changing physical or emotional traumas or have suffered major abuse.
The cause was chosen by Corporate Services Director, Darren Basset. Here, he explains why he chose Wishes 4 Kids to receive Tisski’s £2,000 donation:
“They’re a wonderful charity and we’ve had personal experience of Wishes 4 Kids as our daughter Amy, who is now 14 and has Down syndrome, has been able to attend the annual pantomime that takes place at the wonderful Little Theatre in Leicester each year.
“They make it a wonderful experience for children and young people, and we have some great memories of the trips we have made there.”
Wishes 4 Kids has already granted wishes for almost 6,000 youngsters up to the age of 18. From visits to Disneyland Paris and meeting princesses, to racing cars around Donnington Park, they certainly bring smiles to faces.
Last month, they also provided gifts to hundreds of children who would have otherwise received nothing or very little at Christmas.
