Willow is the only UK charity supporting seriously ill 16-40 year olds by providing positive Special Days. They are solely reliant on the generosity of individuals and companies to fund their work. It was therefore important that Niblock supported a group of individuals from Slough Council in their attempt to raise a considerable amount of money to aid the charity’s work. The group were successful in completing the Eton Dorney Triathlon – and their contribution was undoubtedly greatly appreciated.

Since 1999, the Willow Foundation has fulfilled more than 10,000 Special Days for adults living with life-threatening conditions such as cancer, motor neurone disease, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy and Huntington’s disease. Unfortunately, for many, their Special Day is a final chance to realise a dream. However, it provides an enriching experience that can be shared with all their loved one’s. For other individuals, it also provides a positive focus away from diagnosis and treatment – providing motivation to move forward with their lives.
