Visitors to Hever Castle & Gardens over Christmas helped raise more than £14,000 for Make a Wish UK, the charity that grants life-changing wishes for critically ill children.

Stephanie Witt, Director of Income & Engagement for Make-A-Wish UK says: “After a 40% drop in our income last year, and with the rising number of children in the UK who are living with critical illness, the support of the public has never been so important. So we’re incredibly grateful to Hever Castle and everyone who attended the Christmas event for their generous support in helping us light up the lives of children and their families at the darkest of times.”

The historic Kent attraction re-opens to groups next month. Find out more at https://www.hevercastle.co.uk/
