Oliver visiting Legoland

Oliver's dream to Legoland in November 2018

We are writing to say a huge thank you for making Oliver’s dream of visiting Legoland come true. After you’d so kindly arranged our trip, we kept it a secret from Oliver and his siblings, until the morning we were going. We woke the children super early and packed up the car and it wasn’t until they spotted the signs they knew where we were going. As I’m sure you can imagine it was hysteria! They screamed and cried with joy!

Stanley visiting Legoland

Our first major dream was for Stanley and his family as they visited Legoland in May 2018

Lego lover Stanley is a very brave boy from our area who is fighting acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. Diagnosed in 2017 he has a 3 year treatment plan and is being looked after by Sheffield's excellent Childrens Hospital. Stanley's dream was inspired by his love for lego and we were delighted to send him for a weekend trip. As you can see Stanley loved his dream as much as we loved creating it for him.
