The Starlight Children’s Foundation is a charity dedicated to granting the wish of a lifetime to seriously ill children across the UK. Bringing some fun, happiness and laughter into the lives of kids who may be experiencing times when it seems there’s not much to look forward to.
Five year old William has been driven along the same route to hospital over and over again in the past few years. A route which takes him past the TA centre where he would see the soldiers marching. William decided he really wanted to be a soldier for a day.
After a visit to the TA centre William and his family were lucky enough to witness the Edinburgh Castle One O’Clock gun being fired and William got the rare opportunity to have his photograph taken with the still smoking shell.
