With all the negative media stories around the world right now due to the Covid19 outbreak, it’s nice to know good things still happen and dreams do come true.
Thanks to the continued support from SPBF members and friends, one little girl was able to experience a holiday of a lifetime despite the many challenges she faces on a daily basis. Maisie, who is severely disabled physically and mentally, requires constant care on a 24/7 basis, and any type of excursion is a military operation for the family at the best of times.
So it was the pleasure of the SPBF to assist the family in sprinkling a little of that Disney Magic Dust and making her dream come true.
As a result of our direct intervention, Maisie’s parents where able to properly plan for this trip in the knowledge they had the backing and support of the charity. After obtaining a specialist flight cot to travel, adapted vehicle and a villa specially equipped to accommodate families with special needs, Maisie was finally on her way to never never land.
We loved receiving the pictures on their return of Maisie enjoying meeting Mickey and Minnie as well as spending some special one on one time with her favourite character, her dad in the pool.
It looks like Maisie and her family had a holiday to remember and we are so glad this was all still possible before the lock down took effect across the globe. It is only through members continued support, fundraisers and kind donations from members of the public that we can continue to support such deserving cases. So please continue to give generously when you can and let us continue to help make more dreams come true.
It costs less than the price of a cup of coffee a month to become a member of the Scottish Police Benevolent Fund, giving you peace of mind that in times of need or hardship, we have your back even long after you retire.
