Make a wish at the wishing well

Christmas is a time when everyone is rushing around, making lists and checking them twice, doing what we can to bring a little light to the wintery days.

But it isn’t easy for everyone and this year Lisburn Museum is delighted to have a very special wishing well to help support the Mayor’s charities.

All money thrown into the Lisburn Museum Wishing well will go to ADD N.I. and MACS.   Don’t forget to make a wish when you donate, with Christmas magic in the air it might just come true.
