Spreading hope and positivity

May 28, 2020

As you will know, in March Willow made the very difficult decision to put Special Days on hold. Over the following weeks our Special Day Makers made hundreds of calls to seriously ill young men and women to tell them that the day they had been planning and looking forward to for months would now be postponed.

People living with serious illness or recovering from therapy are at high risk from the virus and have been advised to stay home and shield. Many of the people we’ve been speaking to haven’t been able to leave their home for weeks, except for treatment and hospital appointments and don’t know when they might be able to go out again. We’re devastated that we had to postpone the days of hope so many people had been looking forward to. But while we can’t make Special Days at the moment, we can still create Special Moments.

That’s why we’ve teamed up with the briliant Not Another Bunch Of Flowers to create Willow Positivity Packs. We’ve sent out hundreds of packs already and we’ve been incredibly touched to hear just what they mean to people.

You can see photos, videos and more on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter channels! We’re continuing to send out Positivity Packs in the coming weeks, so if you haven’t received yours yet, please be patient with us!

Positivity Packs are only possible because of our amazing supporters. If you’d like to support Willow to create more Special Moments and make more magic memories, please give the gift of hope.
