Bucket collection in aid of Office Angels

City host Hull City at Ashton Gate tomorrow and the fixture will be raising money for Office Angels Bristol (3pm kick-off).

For 2018, Office Angels will support Make a Wish Foundation, a charity that grants magical wishes to enrich the lives of children and young people fighting critical illness.

Whether it's starring in their own films, walking with dinosaurs, going on an amazing holiday, meeting a celebrity hero, or having a bedroom makeover; the wishes are varied, personal and life-changing.

Make a Wish go above and beyond to grant amazing wishes to very amazing children; their One True Wish made a reality at a time when they need it most. A child's life shouldn't be about illness, hospitals and diagnosis - it should be about wonder, joy and hope.

The effects a wish can have on a seriously ill child are clear: from creating incredible memories, building confidence and bringing happiness, to providing respite from the daily struggles that come with a critical illness. Make a Wish know what wishes can give, and this is the driving force behind why they continue to do what they do.

Office Angels and Make a Wish can’t make these life-changing experiences happen without the generosity of others.

Volunteers will be based throughout the concourse ahead of kick-off to raise funds; so all donations – no matter how big or small – will make a substantial difference.
