The last few months were very busy. I will send a few emails over the next few days.
I went to Disneyland in France a few weeks ago. I really want to thank the the magical taxi tour for an unforgettable weekend at Disney land.
Daddy and Estian stayed at home. Mommy and I went to France with more than a 120 other sick children for a weekend.
The magical taxi tour giving sick children a break from their world of treatment and therapy by going on a trip of a lifetime to Disneyland in a convoy of London Taxi’s. This can only be carried out with the support of Doctors, nurses and Paramedics. We left Friday morning at 5 am from great Ormond street hospital, had breakfast in the Docklands, and left for Disneyland. we crosses the sea to France with a Ferry (a big boat carrying cars) and came back Sunday evening.
Each child is in a taxi with a parent and a convoy of 20 police motorbikes (10 policemen from the UK and 10 policemen from France) escorting the convoy from London to Disneyland stopping all the traffic on route all the way to Disneyland. There was also about 10 police 4×4 vehicles at the front and the back of the convoy. There was 2 AA vans loaded with black can parts in case one broke down, a few ambulances and lots of doctors, nurses and paramedics!
Each taxi driver is allocated to a child and the mother of the child and he becomes more or less your daddy for the weekend taking care of everything and looking after us!
Saturday we had a huge formal ball and I danced so so much!!! At one point I was dancing with 3 taxi drivers at the same time! I really enjoyed the weekend!!!! Thank you so much magical taxi tour for a wonderful and an unforgettable weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You truly went out of your way to make it so special to all the children that were there the weekend!!!!
A big big big thank you to Steve Wright who took care of us for the weekend. He gave up his time for the weekend and use his black cab to drove me and mommy to Disneyland.
