When Starlight offered to grant Ryan a Starlight Wish, he had no hesitation. His wish was to fish with his TV fishing hero, Matt Hayes.
Starlight arranged to fly Ryan, his mum Lynn and dad Marc from Irleand over to a secret location in the Midlands. That night, they stayed in a hotel arranged by Starlight and told Ryan that the next day he was going fishing with Matt. Ryan had always been a quiet child, but he was absolutely delighted and was fidgeting with excitement. The next day, he was first out of bed asking: ‘Can we go now?’. Ryan was on a mission!
