We carried out a slightly different Kick just before Christmas, for a family that we are proud to call friends.
We have known Daisy’s mum, Emily, for a long time and wanted to treat both Daisy and the whole family; Emily, dad Joe and brother Leo, to a fantastic Christmas. We arranged to meet Emily at Birmingham Children’s Hospital, as we wanted to deliver some Christmas selection boxes to the children on the Oncology Ward. It was a truly humbling experience meeting some of the children and their families, seeing them all coping so bravely after having their lives turned upside down after their cancer diagnoses. Experiences like this always affect us deeply and you leave, realising how much you can take life for granted.
