Busby Hotel makes Wishes come True for families

For the third year running The Busby Hotel welcomed children and their families from the When You Wish Upon a Star charity to enjoy a Disney themed Afternoon Tea.

A total of 20 families from all over Scotland were treated to a day of Disney characters, music, dancing, games, prizes, food, face-painting and lots of fun.

The charity helps to bring smiles to children aged 4-17 years who live with a life-threatening illness by giving them memories to treasure.

While the event was more about giving children and their families a memorable day, a total of £300 was also raised for the charity.

The Gough family who attended the afternoon tea said,

“We spent the afternoon like royalty, we had a lovely afternoon tea in the company of some awesome characters who worked their socks off to give our children a wonderful memory. To say that an event like this has a positive impact on children who are fighting the battle of their lives is an understatement. Our whole family has been recharged and re-fuelled by the love in the room. Thank you for each and every high five, groovy move, hug and smile.”

Denise Imrie, General Manager, The Busby Hotel said,

“We have a great relationship with the When You Wish Upon a Star charity and this annual event is a highlight in our diary. We’ve got to know a lot of the families and it’s great to welcome them back every year. We also like meeting the new wish families too. We’re very touched and humbled by the children and families who come to visit us, and if we can bring smiles to faces, we’ve done what we set out to do.”
