This is Mikey whose birthday party Steve Dixon was asked to go to last year. At 12 years old, MiSteve Dixon aka Super Mario inspired by Mikeykey's two big favourites were (and still are at 13!) firstly Chris Kamara ( who took a day out to go to Lincolnshire to meet Mikey) and secondly, Super Mario!  Naturally Steve found the ideal fancy dress for the party and the costume still fits (just).
Steve said "Mikey has been inspirational for me: I have done 3 runs this year and the outfit has raised over £200 just in donations in the bucket, and more importantly, Mikey just loves seeing Super Mario. His face was an absolute joy today so maybe I will just keep on running and raising money!"
Steve 'topped off' his weekend by going to a briefing meeting with some of the parents of the 82 kiddies 'When You Wish Upon A Star' are taking to see Santa in Lapland next week.
When You Wish Upon A Star is a small charity
whose primary aim is to grant the Wishes of children suffering from life threatening illnesses. Since they started in 1990, they have granted over 14,500 Wishes for some very brave and courageous children and their families. All children have Wishes, but for these children and their families that Wish is much more precious. Click the link to get involved:

After 5 years trading in Guildford, we moved to Haslemere. We don't just need room for our national account managers, researchers and phone workers, we need quite a lot of space for storing samples, literature and client sales support items from freezers to tea display boxes and stands. So, having outgrown our Guildford office, we found a quiet office building which is within 5 minutes of the A3 in Surrey.

One of the inspirational speakers at this years HCA Conference and Exhibition was Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson.
