Nine-year-old twins Bethan and Ellie had a packed weekend of unforgettable moments in London on both their Starlight wishes.
First up was the theatre, as huge musical fan, Ellie wished to see The Lion King and have her face painted like the cast!
The fun didn’t stop there as next came Bethan’s wish for the ultimate sleepover at Hamley’s, the world’s most famous toy store!
The exclusive sleepover started with a red-carpet arrival including music and a magic show, followed by a personal shopping trip around the world’s largest toy shop. After all the excitement they headed to the magical sleepover room within the store for movies and bed. The fun continued in the morning, when Bethan and Eleanor got to go on an all-mighty treasure hunt, exploring all seven-floors of the store.
They of course could not leave empty-handed, leaving with goody bags and their pick of their favourite toys.
One man who was determined to make sure the twins had the most perfect weekend was fellow Monmouth local Malcom. He helped to fund the twin’s wish by organising a fundraising evening of auctions, music and dancing in his local community centre, raising over £2,000!
A massive thank you to him and to all our supporters for helping Starlight fund unique and unforgettable experiences that provide an escape from the routine and reality for children living with a serious illness.
