Kingswinford siblings party at No 10
9:00am Friday 20th December 2013 in News
TWO siblings from Kingswinford travelled down to London recently for a festive gathering at Downing Street.
Alana Crockett, who is autistic was invited to the Prime Minister’s children’s Christmas party at No 10, along with nine other families supported by KIDS, a national charity that assists disabled children and their families.
The eight-year-old, who attends the after school club at charity's Orchard Centre in Lye, was joined by her brother Evan, aged six.
Young Evan showed his support for the charity in October when he sacrificed his birthday presents, instead he asked people to donate cash to the centre, a generous move that raised more than £200.
The twosome had a fantastic afternoon at the party, which included presents from Santa, arts and crafts activities and a disco.
They also got to wave goodbye to Santa as he was pulled away on his sleigh by real reindeer.
Their mother, Alex Crockett, said: "We are very grateful to KIDS for honouring her with this once in a lifetime opportunity."
