At the beginning of December we grant the first part of Shirley’s Wish. She loved Downton Abbey so Highclere Castle is a place she’d always wanted to visit. It was a truly magical day she enjoyed an intimate tour around the Castle, followed by Afternoon tea on site in the beautiful grounds.

We’d like to say thank you to the staff on the day of Shirley’s Wish who made this experience very special. She even meet one of the owners Lady Carnarvon who was truly lovely and kindly signed her latest book we bought at the gift shop personally to Shirley.

At the end of the day we gave Shirley a very special box which had her Wish letter in it & a beautiful pair of sparkly shoes explaining her Wish had a part 2.

We would also like to thank our BLW official photographer who was give special permission to just take a few photos quickly outside at the start of her wish. Photos are not permitted at Highclere Castle.
