We’ve just received some lovely photos & kind words from Jo about her Wish we granted in May. “Hi Gini and The Team, I cannot put into words how special my Wish was to Port Lympne last week, from the time I was led to the surprise Limo with the lovely John as our driver to the whole magical experience at the safari park. Everyone was so caring and helpful, the cottage was out of this world and I can’t believe we had our own chef.
