Wish Story: Tech loving Alex gets his Iphone wish!


Alex IphoneA courageous fourteen year old boy has had his wish granted this week after Fullcircle’s managing director Marc Eckley has stepped in, once again, to help the charity.

Marc and the team at Fullcircle have recently become heavily involved with the charity after hearing about its work. Marc has already made one little boy’s dream come true after he built him a tree house in his garden and upon hearing Alex’s story, he jumped at the chance to help the charity again.

Alex’s family contacted Dreams and Wishes after he recently lost a leg to his illness, something which struck a chord with Marc because of his friendship with former paralympian John Harris who, through Marc, is now supporting the charity. read more
