A YOUNG girl undergoing treatment for leukaemia was treated to a trip to Disneyland Paris with her family thanks to Round Table Children’s Wish.

Nine-year-old Torri Stranger, who lives in Gillingham, was diagnosed with leukaemia in April 2018.

She is now well on her way to recovery with only nine months to go until the end of her treatment.

Torri had a fun-packed two days, enjoying rides and meeting various Disney characters in the parks.

Torri's mum Natalie said: "Round Table Children’s Wish are amazing and we want to say a massive thank you to them.

"When you’re in a world when you don’t dare plan anything because it can go so wrong, to have someone else look after all that so we could just turn up and enjoy it is lovely."

Torri's mum, dad and sister Alexsi (aged 11) all went to Disney with Torri and enjoyed all aspects of the trip.

Natalie added: "On the last day we got up early and went in to Paris and both girls really loved the Eiffel Tower – that was a highlight for Torri."

The family knew about Round Table Children’s Wish, which grants hand-crafted wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses, through dad Simon who is a member of Shaftesbury and Gillingham Round Table.

Round Table Children’s Wish Director, Karen Winchcombe said:"It’s wonderful that we could grant this wish for Torri after all her family have been through.

"We are entirely dependent on donations to fund wishes for poorly children and we just couldn’t do it without the generosity of our fundraisers."

Since Torri’s diagnosis in April 2018 the family has raised more than £50,000 to help children’s cancer charities.

And now dad Simon is planning to encourage more help for Round Table Children's Wish as one of his Round Table branch’s nominated charities.

Natalie added: "Before you’re in this situation you have no idea of the amazing work that goes on for charities and how generous people are.

"This illness is a horrid thing but through it so many amazing things have happened. We are on countdown now until the end of the treatment and we know Torri will be completely cured."

Over the last 30 years Round Table Children’s Wish has helped make wishes come true for many youngsters and their families all over the country.
