Round Table Children's Wish
The Round Table Children's Wish grants wishes to children suffering from life threatening illnesses, providing a unique and positive experience to children when they most need it most. The charity granted Ellaline's life-long wish, to swim with Dolphins, which took place in Loro Parque, Tenerife. Ellaline and her friends also attended a party in Rubyz, Bournemouth, to raise funds and party in their pink limousines!
