Make-A-Wish Foundation gets round postal strike with free help

Express delivery company City Link comes to charity's rescue

Make-A-Wish Foundation UK had a wish of its own granted when a company agreed to deliver its mail during the postal strike free of charge.

The charity, which grants wishes to children and young people with life-threatening illnesses, was worried that the strike would prevent it from sending its ‘wish packs'.

The packs contain items such as tickets for holidays that the charity has paid for.

Express delivery company City Link offered to send the packs free of charge.

The two organisations are based in Camberley, Surrey, and the company was looking for a charity to support.

Joanne Micklewright, head of wish granting at Make-A-Wish, said she was delighted by the offer. "We regularly have more than 50 wish packs to be delivered every month," she said.
