The charity helps children and their siblings going through gruelling treatments to meet their idols. Celebrities such as Ed Sheeran, Beyonce, McBusted, The Script, and The Scotland football team. The children are also given the chance to go along to concerts, theatre shows, football games and outings to M&D’s theme park, Blair Drummond Safari park, Zoos, Restaurants or anything they desire to make their lives a little more bearable during this hard time.
In 2014 we released our Christmas single called This Christmas. with the help of Motherwell based singer/songwriter Billy Warren. The Charity Single feaures Michelle McManus, Tom Urie, Nicholas McDonald, Scott Peden, Kathleen McDermott, Emily Middlemas, Brian Leys, Bev Lyons, Ashley McCullagh, and Keri Taylor.
Each year, we have a Christmas party at Motherwell Football Club for 150-200 children and their families. The party is usually attended by local celebrities and Les along with his helpers work tirelessly throughout the year to provide entertainment and gifts for each child.
To see the children smile and for the families to have the memories of their sick children enjoying themselves is priceless and having fun instead of being in a hospital environment is amazing and all worthwhile.
