About Us  
The HoneyRose Foundation is a registered charity based in St Helens, dedicated to granting special wishes to adults who are suffering with Cancer and other life-threatening and terminal illnesses.

Lynn Duffy MBE founded the HoneyRose Foundation in 2004 in memory of three close friends who sadly passed away due terminal illness. 

This is their legacy...

Frequently Asked Questions

Who Can Apply For A Wish?
A special wish can be applied for by anyone over the age of 40 suffering with a terminal/life-threatening illness, or on their behalf.

What is classed as a special wish?
A special wish can be almost anything and should be of the applicants choosing.
Please note: We are unable to consider the following:
  • Cash
  • Reimbursements for wishes booked by you
  • Automobiles, lifts or repairs
  • Travel outside of the UK
  • Medical Treatment | Supplies | Equipment | Medical Transportation
  • Requests for non residents of the UK
  • Surprise Wishes
  • Legal Assistance
  • Hunting
  • Funeral Arrangements
  • Cruises
  • Holiday Insurance
Who can I include?
A responsible companion must accompany you on your Special Wish. They must be over 18 and their main responsibility is your welfare. They should be fully aware of your medical requirements and any special needs. 
The HoneyRose Foundation will provide a wish for the wish recipient and their immediate family members or caregiver - such as spouse/significant other, mother, father and/or any dependant children, under the age of 18.
If the wish recipient wants children, grandchildren or other relatives or friends over 18 to accompany them on their wish, the family may be responsible for making arrangements and payment for the additional accommodation, meals etc.

What is included in a wish that requires accommodation? And how long can I be away?
Travel related wishes that need accommodation may last no longer that 3 nights (unless otherwise discussed) and are not all-inclusive. You may be responsible for your own spending money. We do however, try our best to provide transportation, meals, hotel accommodation, theme park passes etc.

What if I require medical assistance?
The HoneyRose Foundation is not a medical charity, therefore, we cannot assist with medical needs such as air ambulance transportation, oxygen, medical equipment, treatment, nurses and aides. 
All medical assistance is to be pre-arranged by your medical provider. This includes oxygen, wheelchairs, scooters etc.

What if I want to meet a celebrity?
Celebrity wishes may take longer to arrange, as they are dependant upon the celebrities availability and willingness to participate. Therefore, we cannot guarantee meet and greets, phone calls or autographed memorabilia.
Wish recipients requesting a celebrity wish (actors, musicians, sports figures, authors etc.) must be able to travel to the celebrity. We cannot request in home visits. 

How long will it take to process my application?
Income to the Foundation is not guaranteed and we do struggle at times to raise sufficient funds to grant all the wishes requested. 
Whilst we strive to complete your wish as soon as possible, if donations/willing fundraisers are not forthcoming on a regular basis, this will delay our ability to fulfil your wish. We therefore ask for your understanding and patience. 

Please make sure your application is completed as missing/false information will delay or halt your application. 
All aspects of each wish are subject to board approval. 

Please note: The HoneyRose Foundation reserves the right to cancel or change preparation or fulfilment of the wish at any time after signing the agreement if they feel that the wish will endanger the health or safety of the recipient. Therefore, we ask that all wishes be realistic for the recipient and for the HoneyRose Foundation to fulfil.

Polite Notice
As of October 2017 we will no longer be accepting wishes for Center Parcs. This is due to a clause in their policy that does not allow people with pre-determined illness to have cancellation insurance. We are sorry any inconvenience caused, as we know this is a popular request. Other requests for similar holidays will be accepted.

If you have your own ideas and wish to discuss them before submitting your application, give us a call! Out team are always available and more than happy to help.
