Willow is the only UK charity supporting seriously ill 16 to 40 year olds by providing unique and positive Special Days.
Every stroke you swim, every turn of your wheels, every step you take, you’ll be doing something amazing by raising funds to help create more Special Days.
Will you prove your Will of Iron for Special Days? At a time of uncertainty, a Special Day provides the inspiration to make every moment count.
For some people it is a positive focus away from diagnosis and treatment and may be a final chance to create lasting memories. For others, it can mark the recovery from a serious illness, boost confidence and provide motivation to move forward with their lives.

Special Days provide an uplifting and positive experience to be shared with a partner, parents, siblings, children or close friends. From the moment of application and the anticipation of the day to come, to the excitement of the day itself, a Special Day creates memories that are treasured forever.
To date Willow has fulfilled more than 11,000 Special Days for young adults living with life-threatening conditions such as cancer, motor neurone disease, cystic fibrosis and Huntington’s disease.
Founded in 1999 by former Arsenal goalkeeper and TV presenter, Bob Wilson and his wife, Megs, Willow is totally reliant on the generosity of individuals, companies and trusts / foundations to fund its work.
