Dreams

Daniel meets Kevin

Daniel was flown down from Newcastle to meet his hero Kevin Dualla. Dan was fascinated by the program “Blues Clues” and he wanted to meet the presenter and to visit the set. With military precision the trip was set in motion and the event took place. On the return flight was one very very happy boy. Daniel was presented with a video of the meeting to remind him of the day that he met his hero.

James to meet Justin Rose

An avid golfer and Junior Club Captain, young James was struck with leukemia and was undergoing treatment at the world famous “Barts” Hospital in London. Having been through the vigorous treatment it was time for a treat. Just prior to the Open Championship, Justin Rose was practicing at his local club and agreed to take time out of his busy schedule to give James a few tips and a little extra coaching. The two of them went out to enjoy 9 holes. Returning to the club house was one happy young man accompanied by a true professional and gentleman.

Adam meets Phil Collins

It was Adams wish to be able to have a drumming lesson, who better than the aficionado of the skins, Phil Collins. Adam was picked up from home under the pretence that he was going for another hospital visit. Little did he know! A couple of hours later we arrived at the Genesis studio’s in darkest Sussex. Adam was greeted by Phil and given a tour of the facilities then it was down to business. Having settled down behind the biggest drum kit imaginable, Adam donned the headsets and was told to lay down the rhythm for what we discovered was the new soundtrack for the Disney blockbuster “Tarzan”.

Looking at the pictures it was hard to tell who was the most excited, Linda or the girls.
