Wish Holidays

With support from the team at Thomas Cook Gloucester, The Pied Piper Appeal sends children with terminal or life-threatening illnesses and their families on memory making Wish Holidays.

Holiday wishes for children

with life-limiting illnesses

Over the last 3 and a half years, special, well-deserved holidays for seriously ill children in Gloucestershire have been organised by Pied Piper using money raised under the Cloud 9 charity. In April 2015 Cloud 9 officially merged with the Pied Piper Appeal. All funds raised through Cloud 9 to this point have been set aside purely for holidays for the children and their families. Moving forward, Pied Piper will continue to fundraise for this great cause, which brings a much-deserved break for the children and their carers.

Holidays that help

Many of the children that we help have spent long periods of time in hospital and undergone painful treatments. Some have had to endure an extensive regime of medications and therapies on a daily basis that has denied them the freedom of a trouble-free childhood, which we all take for granted.

We provide these children and their families with a once in a lifetime trip, in the hope that they can experience the joys of childhood, and respite from their life-limiting illness.

Do you wish to be considered?

For all children living in Gloucestershire, please complete an application form, with brief medical and personal details about your child, including child’s age, school, disability limitations and as much information as you can provide to enable the Trustees to make an informed decision. You will also need to obtain a letter of support from a medical professional involved in your child’s care and send a recent photograph.
