Thomas and Matthew with Fernando TorresThomas (right of picture) is seven years old and suffers from Crohns disease.

A huge football fan, Thomas’s wish-of-a-lifetime was to watch his favourite team, Chelsea, and to meet some on the players.

Starlight arranged for Thomas and his best friend Matthew to watch a Chelsea versus Portsmouth match at Stamford FC.

To Thomas and Matthew’s delight they were also able to meet their hero, and star Chelsea striker, Fernando Torres.
