Father Christmas grants Starlight Wishes in Lapland

Just before Christmas 29 children and their parents set of to try and find Father Christmas in Lapland.

On the magical trip the children and families built snowmen, rode through the forest on a husky drawn sleigh, met the reindeer and, of course, Father Christmas and his elves.

Elizabeth, mum of four-year-old Isla who is in remission from acute lymphoblastic leukaemia and wished to meet Santa, said, “The Lapland experience with Starlight gave us four days of unadulterated happiness, joy and shared celebration. After two and a half years of heartache and desperate moments, the trip has given us the most magical and wonderful moments that will live with us forever.”
