In December 2017, the Swinge family were gifted their first ever holiday to Lorne for 6 days.

Along with all the other surprises, each of the children received a handmade bear, which when squeezed gave this special message: You are special, never give up.

There were tears of joy and great excitement, as they each named their bear.

Special thanks are extended to Mikayla who created and then made the bears in her spare time, during her final year at primary school.

Unique bears made by an extraordinary person for a special family.

We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.Winston Churchill.
