Alice the Elf tells Joshua he is going to Lapland

Seven-year old Joshua knows just how hard it is to be very unwell at Christmas. He has been suffering from an optic glioma, which is a form of brain tumour, and for the last two Christmases he has been undergoing intensive treatment in hospital to fight the disease. Just before Christmas, Santa sent his best Elf, Alice, to tell Joshua he was going to Lapland and this film is Alice the Elf’s report into how it went!

Thanks to our wonderful kind supporters we can report ‘Wish granted’ and that Joshua’s dream came true!
