In 2008, famous faces including of Prince Harry, Sienna Miller and Greg Rusedski attended the day. However, Starlight wish child Millie, aged 4, who has leukaemia, stole the show. Millie, standing on a trading desk, thanked the entire company for her wish to go to Lapland before entertaining them all with a song! Their kind gift enabled Starlight to grant an 150 extra wishes that year!
