Diary - Friday 12th of February
Hello everyone! We have had a very busy past few months at Samuel's Smile! BUT FINALY!!!! WE ARE NOW A REGISTERED CHARITY, SC046209 IS OUR OFFICIAL REGISTERED NUMBER. This means even bigger things for Samuel's Smile to come.
In December we took 27 families to see Santa at Loch Lomond shores, it was possibly the most magical day we have ever had. We arrived at the marquee for some pies and hot chocolate for the kids ( who can eat ) and glowsticks, also many other toys that the kids could play with. Then we boarded the train that took us through the woods and we all sang Christmas carols and enjoyed each other's company. We arrived at Santa's marquee in the wood and were greeted by the elves and every single child got a big stuffed Santa and siblings got a big stuffed reindeer! It was such a magical night and we cannot thank Loch Lomond shores for everything they have done for Samuel's Smile! See you soon!
On Thursday the 4th in the Kings Theatre I had the opportunity to sing on stage with 'Elvis' or better known as Rob Kingsley, he has toured around the world as an Elvis Tribute act. He had seen my advert and wanted me to sing The Wonder of You, he also allowed us to have a collection for Samuel's Smile and on the night we raised £1,202.23!!!! It was an amazing night and my dream came true when I had the chance to share the stage with Rob being Elvis, I cannot thank you all enough for what you did for me and my charity! Look forward to doing it again next year. Rob also gave me a special gift, an Elvis on Tour badge from 1972!!! There is only a few in existence, its already up on my wall and can't take my eyes off it! See you again soon Rob and thanks for making my dream come true.
It was amzing to take along over 100 SMILERS including families with their children and friends sharing this special moment with us. It was a sight to see when everyone walked in with their Samuel's Smile shirts and jumpers on!
Hope everyone is well and remember...KEEP SMILING Samuel x
