We had a special ‘smile’ earlier this week………
Brian House Children’s Hospice in Blackpool nominated Liv and her family. Liv is 7 and has been really quite poorly for some months. She’s been through some tough treatments with mum, dad and brother Ben alongside. She travelled every day from her home to Manchester Children’s Hospital – never complaining and being good as gold despite the treatment being something that adults would struggle with.
Harry Potter, unicorns and glitter
are pretty much Liv’s favourite things but try as we might to get Harry Potter or a unicorn for the day – we just couldn’t do it. So, we organised a small family party with Liv as guest of honour and entertainment by super magician Brian Gore of Preston. We got balloons and banners and food and decorated the room while Liv and family were at the park.
When they all returned – mum, dad, Ben, aunties, uncles, grandparents and 3 cousins – Brian was all ready for the show. With his trusty assistant, Maggie the rabbit, he entertained the whole family. Liv laughed so much it was a joy to hear.
The sun was shining so they had the buffet in the garden and after that we gave each child a personalised goody bag.
A really memorable and joyous time for a special, brave little girl and her equally special and brave family,
