Bake for a child like Ben

Ben making cupcakes

Just before Ben’s fifth birthday, his family received the devastating news that he had Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. He has since endured three years of intensive chemotherapy.

In and out of hospital, Ben was in desperate need of some time that was all about him – and not about his illness.

Thanks to the support from people like you, we were able to make Ben’s wish come true: to become a chef for the day!

Gifted with his very own pair of chef’s whites, Ben was given an exclusive tour of the kitchens at a top London hotel. His favourite part was getting creative with the pros and decorating cupcakes.

Ben’s mum Kelly told us after the wish: “It has been amazing for us all. Make-A-Wish has given us everything and more.”

We wouldn’t have been able to grant Ben’s wish without donations from our amazing fundraisers. To help us make more magical dreams come true – get in the kitchen just like Ben and take part in Bake-A-Wish.
