Starlight once again donned the woolly hats and snow suits for our annual group wish trip to Lapland!

On day one of the adventure, Santa kindly lent us his reindeer for a magical sleigh ride through the woods, then it was on to the husky farm for another search through the snow for Santa. Finally, the group let off some steam in the evening by racing Santa’s elves down the toboggan slopes!

Our second day began with a trip to Santa’s post office; just to double-double check that everyone’s letters had arrived safely! The group then stumbled upon a snow-covered cabin where Mr & Mrs Claus appeared and welcomed them with open arms. Definitely a moment our families will never forget.

The group celebrated finding Santa together on their final night at a special Gala Dinner, one of the extra special things about the group trip being the friends made along the way.

This was the trip of a lifetime. We all had the most magical time, Eleri’s wish was fulfilled ten times over. A massive thank you to Starlight – we will forever be grateful for the wonderful memories.

Louise, Eleri's mum
