Scores of youngsters have enjoyed an afternoon of fairytale magic at our Special Stars at Christmas party.
Princess World UK, based at Westwood, held two parties yesterday (December 21) for children who are dealing with life limiting conditions, disabilities, bereavements or are caring for ill siblings or parents.
The youngsters were all nominated for the Princess World party, which has been supported by The Isle of Thanet News, to give them a special treat.
We appealed for nominations in October, receiving scores of responses and sharing some of the stories from our special guests.
The events included gifts for the children, food and drink, games and a special visit from Santa. Donations came from generous individuals and businesses inclusing Photogenic Photography, Margate’s Buoy and Oyster restaurant; Letz Party, based in Ramsgate; Ramsgate’s Atlas Scaffolding; The Rustic Co in Broadstairs and from Silvers Event Entertainment.
Zahra Tarjomani, from Princess World UK, said: “We had the most amazing day with some incredible children.
“It was the best feeling in the world, seeing their eyes light up with all of the surprises they had in store. We had parents tell us that they haven’t seen their child this excited before and we were so touched by all of their courage and bravery.
“A huge thank you to everyone for their help and donations. We’ve had an amazing day.”
Princess World UK will also carry out a present run on Christmas Eve to the children’s Rainbow Ward at Margate’s QEQM Hospital with gifts generously donated by The Isle of Thanet News and Princess World UK followers.
