Sarah and Dave

Sarah and Dave are President and Vice President of our Alice Springs volunteer branch. After meeting as volunteers, they realised that they had more in common than Make-A-Wish - and are getting married!


This year Charmaine from our Adelaide branch is celebrating 25 years of volunteering with Make-A-Wish. In honour of this incredible milestone, we asked Charmaine about her time as a volunteer, and the impact that Make-A-Wish has had on her life.
