Thanks for Making Lian’s Wish Come True!
We would like to share our delight at the latest news from Make-A-Wish Spain, with all the BSB community – students, parents and staff, at both campuses Castelldefels and Sitges.
As previously posted (see post), the BSB Primary Fundraising Society were involved in selling 300 Wish Stars to make Lian’s wish come true. Lian is a 3-year-old boy with a rare neurological disease which means he can’t move or talk, but responds to colours and sounds. His wish was to go to Euro Disney with his family. Our fundraising team sold all the Stars and raised 615 euros.
Now we are all pleased to hear that Lian travelled to Paris last month!
Ms Morales, Institutional Relationship Manager of Make-A-Wish Spain, congratulated and thanked our team for our contribution to achieve this: “We would like to thank you for your involvement with the Foundation and the Stars campaign. Every wishful star from each one of your students has helped Lian to move forward and achieve his wish. Congratulations to you all!” She added: “For medical reasons we had to advance Lian’s wish to the end of December, when he travelled to the world of magic with his parents and siblings. It was an amazing experience for him, which has really changed him. Thank you very much for joining Lian’s wish. We hope that we can keep working together in 2017 and help other children with serious illnesses make their wishes come true.”
Lian’s mom had also said:
“We are Lian’s Family. We would like to thank you for organising this wish, which has exceeded all our expectations. Lian and Unai have spent a truly lovely time. We thought it very touching to see them enjoy so much! Lian could not stop smiling; there is so much visual stimulation in Disneyland! We believe it has been a therapeutic experience for him and for everyone accompanying him. We were treated in the most exquisite manner, whether at the airport, in the hotel or in the Park itself. We would like to thank the people who assisted us more closely throughout this process. We were pampered by everyone and it has been a really enjoyable experience.”
In a recent interview by the BSB Primary Magazine Club, Mrs Roa, the Society Leader, said: “Huge thanks to anyone who has supported this and bought a star!”
Ms Dean, Deputy Head of Early Years and Primary in BSB Castelldefels, also said: “Thank you to all those children who were involved in this and especially to Vida (Mrs Roa) who liaised with the organisation.”
Congratulations to all the children in the BSB Primary Fundraising Society; to Mrs Roa and also to Ms Gómez and Ms Alfonso, BSB teachers from the Spanish department, who have also been working with the Fundraising Society. And thank you very much to everyone helping Lian’s dream come true!
