Ill children were treated to a Christmas party and magical winter wonderland by a children's wish making charity.

Ask Albie, hosted more than 100 children at their Christmas event in the oncology department at Queen’s Hospital, Rom Valley Way, Romford on Sunday, December 3.

This year, the charity’s festive event received a £5,000 donation from their sponsor Procter & Gamble.

Rachel Clancy, founder of Ask Albie, told the Recorder: “It was absolutely wonderful. Afterwards we received a lot of messages from the families to say thank you.

It’s great for people to come together and give back, especially at this time of year.”

Recently, Ask Albie helped a 16 year-old-boy after he was told that he only had a couple weeks to live.

The charity organised for him to travel to Liverpool where he met some of his favourite football players.

Rachel added: “We always try to create special memories before it’s too late.”
