Creating Memories

Based in Bedford, Creating Memories is the only local wish granting charity in the region, providing truly bespoke wishes for children with life limiting and/or terminal illnesses, and their families.

Since its inception back in 2018, the charity has formed excellent working relationships with several hospices across Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire. The families who use the facilities at the hospices are referred to Creating Memories, if they want to request a wish. Each wish must be tailored for each child and their specific medical needs, and because the beneficiaries are some of the most vulnerable in society, extra care and understanding around the patients’ health and safety is vital. 
Creating Memories respects each family’s choice, while doing everything possible to deliver the wish.
"My son loved his day out at Legoland and was in his element. It was something he had wanted to do for a long time. We are very grateful to Creating Memories for making this happen. For us to have a great day as a family that we will always remember"

“Creating Memories has made my son’s wishes come true, inspiring him to be more creative. We really appreciate Creating Memories for all their help.”

“Thank you Creating Memories for the fantastic wish you gave my son for his 6th birthday - you went above and beyond for him. You made him feel special and happy, with such attention to detail. We, as a family, cannot thank you enough for doing this and making our day one to remember. You are genuinely amazing at what you do.”
