A 4-year-old girl from Watford who has Cystic Fibrosis was granted her birthday wish.

Lily Davis, of North Western Avenue, celebrated her fourth birthday at a "unicorn" party, held at St Thomas’ Church, Langley Road on Saturday

The party was organised by Rays of Sunshine, a charity that specialises in granting seriously and terminally ill children wishes "which may seem impossible" and allowed Lily to ride the unicorn after meeting and having a photograph with it.

Watford Observer:

Lily’s father, Dougie, said that he and his wife, Alix, wanted to thank Rays of Sunshine for putting the event on and were happy with how the day went.

He said: "This was her wish. We were happy for Lily. This is what she wanted. We would not be able to provide a party like this, so for someone else to come in and put on what she wanted.

"To us it was excellent. They gave her her wish and she loved it. She loved it and we loved it for her."

The family were picked up at 1.30 on Saturday by a red Chrysler limousine and after meeting the unicorn, they were joined by Lily’s friends for the party, which began at 2.30.

All the children had the opportunity to meet the unicorn and have a photograph with it.

Dougie added: "Everyone at school has been talking about it.

Dougie and Alix have four children, three of which have Cystic Fibrosis.
