A Wishaw char­ity made two young girls’ dreams come true when they met global su­per­star Ed Sheeran.

The Les Hoey DreamMaker Foun­da­tion ar­ranged for Sara Miller and Ad­di­son Hor­nal, who are both bat­tling life-threat­en­ing ill­nesses, to en­joy the VIP gig ex­pe­ri­ence of a life­time.

Not only were they seated in a per­sonal box at Ham­p­den Sta­dium for his Fri­day head­line show and treated to din­ner, the pair got to meet the Shape of You star be­fore he took to the stage.

Char­ity hero Les said: “We had the priv­i­lege of the amaz­ing Ed Sheeran giv­ing his time to our small char­ity be­fore his sold out gig in Glas­gow when he met our two wee DreamMak­ers Ad­di­son and Sara.

“Ed asked the girls how they were do­ing and how their treat­ment was com­ing along.

“He also asked the girls their favourite songs and told them he would sing them for them be­fore giv­ing them both a hug.”

Sara Miller, 14, was di­ag­nosed with Non-Hodgkin Lym­phoma in Novem­ber and still has sev­eral weeks left of chemo­ther­apy.

She has been se­ri­ously ill with the dis­ease and her visit to see Ed was her first night out in six months.

Ad­di­son Hor­nal, aged eight suffers from Acute Lym­phoblas­tic Leukaemia and has been in hos­pi­tal since Novem­ber.

Sara said: “Ed was so down to earth and more like a nor­mal guy than a celebrity.

“I was so ex­cited to meet him and we walked down to his dress­ing room and he came up and got a pic­ture with me and signed an au­to­graph.

“He also signed a t-shirt for one of my friends Molly who couldn’t make it be­cause she had to go back to hos­pi­tal.

“He asked about my time in hos­pi­tal too and was just so nice.”

Ad­di­son’s mum Pamela said: “Ad­di­son has just started eat­ing prop­erly again and was de­lighted to meet Ed.

“He kissed her on the cheek and asked her for a hug. “He’s amaz­ing and be­haves like a nor­mal guy. “It was won­der­ful he made time to see the chil­dren.”

Les added: “The DreamMaker team gifted them some of Ed’s mer­chan­dise and af­ter meet­ing Ed they danced the night away to their favourite songs.

“We are so grate­ful to Ed for giv­ing his time to us again and mak­ing th­ese wee ones’ dreams come true.”
