The company is giving $75,000 a year for three years to make dreams come true for children such as Lania (5), who is fighting lymphoblastic leukaemia and received a family trip to the Gold Coast’s theme parks.

Lania, in hospital frequently for treatment since 2009, was looking forward to visiting Wiggles World at Dream World.

Make-A-Wish chief Gerard Menses said the partnership would make wishes come true sooner for seriously ill WA children.

Mineral Resources managing director Chris Ellison said they wanted to give back to those who needed it most ” at least 10 children a year will benefit from the gesture.
