Dear Friend and Supporter,

It is with great disappointment that we must inform you that the organising committee have had to cancel this year’s Wishes 4 Kids Charity Fireworks and Bonfire Night.

The Event has turned into a major event over the last 3 years, and with over 10,000 people expected we must put public safety as our priority. Unfortunately, the weather has been very wet in the last few weeks, and continues to be. This has meant that the ground conditions are not safe, and we would not be able to put on the event to the highest standards you have come to expect.

The Bonfire is a major fundraiser for Wishes 4 Kids, last year raising £17,500. If you would like to support the charity and donate to help cover the costs to help to raise vital funds to ensure that as many wishes as possible can be granted throughout 2020 then please follow the link to donate –…/illston-charity-bonfire

You can donate from £2 and every donation helps grant wishes for children and youngsters in Leicestershire who are life limited, terminally ill, have experienced life-changing physical or emotional traumas and have suffered major abuse.

Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to welcoming you all to the Bonfire and Fireworks Night on Wednesday 5th Nov 2020.

John/Gez/Jan and the Team.
