On Tuesday 30th November, one of our VIP guests by the name of Arwen Card who is 6 years old was granted a wish of being a princess for the day by the charity Rays of Sunshine. Below is the BBC’s coverage:
Rays of sunshine Children’s Charity exists to grant the wishes of children who are living with serious or life-threatening illnesses between the ages of 3-18 who live in the United Kingdom. With supporter’s help they and their families can experience the joy and excitement of doing something they’ve only ever dreamt of before. www.raysofsunshine.org.uk
Arwen stayed in one of our suites overnight and was treated to a delicious dinner in-suite followed by breakfast in the Library this morning.
Whilst finishing breakfast, a red carpet was laid at the entrance of 51 to await the arrival of her very own horse-drawn carriage to take Arwen and her family to Harrods for a shopping extravaganza.
It may have been cold and snowing in the Courtyard today, but Arwen certainly lit-up and warmed all of our hearts as we helped make her wish come true.
“We send our warmest regards to Arwen and her family and will continue to support her wishes. She has been a delight and possibly one of our sweetest most inspiring guests” Prabhat Verma, General Manager
