Bucket List Wishes for terminally ill adults

Welcome To Bucket List Wishes

Bucket List Wishes, a UK Charity based in the heart of Berkshire, warmly welcomes you

Bucket List Wishes aim to grant one Wish from your Bucket List. We focus on what truly matters; the person, their Wishes and making dreams a reality with the people they love. Creating lasting memories that are treasured forever.

Founded by Gini Hackett, our charity is inspired by her beloved Mum ‘Jean Evelyn Vaughan’ who had her own Bucket List granted, This is why Bucket List Wishes was born. Every Wish fulfilled creates a cherished memory for our Wish person and their loved one, who they one day leave behind.

Jay's Wish

Wow what a WISH!!

We are absolutely thrilled to share Jay's Wish Story with all of you.

Firstly we'd like to say a huge thank you to the amazing Wrexham Community who really helped us grant this incredible Wish.

For Jay's Wish we have to say a massive thank you to:

Two local businesses, WREXRENT & Minera Roof Trusses Ltd for donating the 4 Match tickets for this Wish, as this wouldn't have been possible without your kind donation.

To Ryan Reynolds for giving his time so generously to Jay and his family at the game. What a true gent he was!

John for help with organising everything from the club side of things at Wrexham AFC & the family's club merchandise.

Peter from BBC Wales, Andy one of our BLW Supporters and the football legend 'Tony Adams' who all helped to make this Wish extra special for Jay.

We had 3 brilliant transport companies help us too!

Jim from Stretch-N-Go for getting them all the way to Wrexham in style.

Two lovely drivers from Wrexham Chauffeurs for getting them to and from the Hotel to the Match. Also Wrexham Airport Taxi for taking them all safely back home on the day.

Overnight accommodation, food & drinks were all supplied by Wynnstay Arms Ruabon the Team here took really great care of our Wish family during their stay.

Jay's Wife's flowers were so beautiful and were from Ruth Jones Floral design Wedding & Event specialist

Our BLW volunteers worked super hard and for many hours to grant this Wish to make these extraordinary memories for Jay & his loved ones to always truly cherish. As you can see, well worth every minute that was spent planning, organising and funding this Wish.

As a thank you for all of the help with Jay’s Wish, we made a donation to Nightingale House, which is the local Hospice in Wrexham. 

Granting Wishes to make memories, that's what we do!
