Ben's mum, Sharon, said: “The wish gave Ben complete joy; he didn’t stop smiling throughout the whole experience and still talks about it every day!

We all have fantastic memories to treasure. These memories have the power to lift Ben out of any difficult times and transport him into a happy, joyful, positive place. It is amazing.”
