Helena's Story


Dear Chris, Ursula and the Team

I am writing to say a big, big thank you for arranging the trip to Olympia Horse show with my family. My Mum had tried so hard to get tickets for the Sunday afternoon, but you pulled out the stops and made it happen. It was a special day for me, as it marked the last day of treatment in my battle against leukaemia.

Since the day I was diagnosed I have never let the illness change what I wanted to do, and I hope to see you all at one of your days out.

Thank you

Helena x

Mum, Dad and Zara say a big thank you too.

We were also able to grant Helena a second wish which was for a PSP. When we gave it to her the smile was enough to melt you!

There was also a wish for her sister, Zara, who wanted a bike which we wrapped up and, when she opened it, there was no time to lose before she got on it and went for a ride!

Below is an email that we received from the family:

‘Hi guys it was lovely to meet you today. Thank you for the wonderful wish you granted us, you truly are amazing!’

Amanda, Paul, Helena and Zara xx
