Sophie Pritchett, 17, from Dorset and who lives with cerebral palsy, joins STARboard with hopes to raise awareness of Make-A-Wish and help increase visibility around its fundraising. Her wish, to stay at a fancy hotel in London, was granted by Make-A-Wish last year. Together with her family Sophie enjoyed a full weekend stay in a top hotel with her own butler who made sure she felt like royalty every moment of the day. Over the course of the weekend activities included dinner at the Shard, a trip on the London Eye, box seats at West End production of Aladdin and afternoon tea at the hotel.
As well as actively participating in sports, Sophie spends a lot of time working with other children’s charities including Leaders Unlocked and Children’s England.
