  • Mission statement

    The Willow Foundation is a national charity that provides special days out for seriously ill 16-40 year olds.

    Special days offer time out from treatment and allow young adults, their family and friends to spend quality time together and the chance to feel normal.

    Special days are entirely of the applicant's choosing with the most popular requests being family breaks to Center Parcs and trips to London. Other popular days include football matches, pop concerts, celebrity meet and greets and trips on the Orient Express, as well as unusual requests like staying in a haunted house.

    To date the charity has provided more than 4,200 special days for people living with cancer, motor neurone disease, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy and Huntingdon's, amongst others

    The charity was set up by Arsenal legend and TV presenter, Bob Wilson and his wife Megs in memory of their daughter Anna who died of cancer aged just 31.
