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.”
