Today, the charitable trust were very pleased to be able to present Molly Olly’s Wishes with a cheque for £5,000 from the monies raised from our 2019 fundraising. This is a charity we have supported in previous years and we are really pleased to be able to present this money to them, to assist in continuing the great work that they do.
Molly Olly’s Wishes supports children with terminal or life threatening illnesses and their families to help with their emotional wellbeing. Granting individual wishes and donating therapeutic toys and books to both children directly and to hospitals throughout the UK.
Molly Olly’s Wishes was founded in 2011 by Rachel and Tim Ollerenshaw. Their daughter Molly Ollerenshaw was diagnosed aged 3 with a Wilms tumour and despite a long and brave 5 year fight, died in 2011.
They spent a large part of those years in and out of hospital and soon realised that many of the patients they met did not have the emotional or financial support that they had for Molly and her siblings. Molly wanted to help these children and so Molly Olly’s Wishes was born.
Molly’s mum Rachel said, “Thankyou to all the team at O’Brien Contractors Limited for their support. Your donation is very much appreciated and will help many children with life threatening illnesses”.
