West Mercia Fork Trucks are supporting Molly Olly’s Wishes
West Mercia Fork Trucks are supporting Molly Olly’s Wishes and the wonderful work they do.
Molly Olly’s Wishes supports children with life threatening or life limiting illnesses and their families to help with their emotional wellbeing. This charity grants individual wishes and donates therapeutic toys and books to both children directly and to hospitals throughout the UK.
1 child in every 500 in the UK will develop some form of cancer by the age of 14 and current data suggests there are 1,900 new cases of childhood (0 to 14 years in age) cancer in UK each year. More children are told that they have another life threatening or life limiting illness in one form or another. Many of these, especially those diagnosed with leukaemia, will be under 5 years old.
Molly Olly’s Wishes has developed a therapeutic toy lion and accompanying story books, to help support these children. These are donated free of charge to children either through their hospital or can be requested directly.
Check out our Olly The Brave mascot helping out with a bit of materials handling at our Oldbury head office. If you would like to show your support, please donate what you can to their Just Giving page here.
