Middlesbrough supporter Jordan Dee, aged 15, has had his wish to attend an England Football Club training day granted by Starlight Children’s Foundation, the UK’s leading wish granting charity for children with serious and terminal illnesses.
When Jordan’s parents, Julie and Lee, first asked Jordan what his dearest wish would be, he immediately replied that it would be to meet the England team and to see them train. Little did he know that his parents were secretly organising with Starlight for this very wish to come true.

Starlight grants a once-in-a-lifetime wish for seriously and terminally ill children, restoring the magic and fun of childhood and giving the whole family happy memories to share, whatever the future holds.
Starlight also creates entertainment in every hospital and hospice throughout the UK. Sick children go to Starlight parties, laugh their way through pantomimes, go out on Starlight Escapes, play games and watch films on the Starlight Fun Centre, and enjoy the toys and puzzles of the Starlight Distraction Box. Happy children respond better to treatment and Starlight helps children to forget about their illness and simply have a bit of fun.
You can make a donation online or by calling us on 020 7262 2881. For every £1 you donate, Starlight can assure you that 91p goes towards helping very ill children. To refer a child for a wish, simply complete our wish referral form.
