Dreams on Moonbeams
1370. Alisar Taylor
Alisar Taylor, from Gateshead, has utilised her party planning business ‘Dreams on Moonbeams’ to offer free video calls and zoom parties for children who are in hospital and children with special needs at this time.
Children are visited by their favourite fairy-tale character to brighten up their days. Alisar also hosts zoom discos for local children’s charities.
In a personal letter to Alisar, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said:
“Being in hospital as a child can be daunting at any time, and only more so when the necessary restrictions to save lives from Coronavirus mean family and friends can no longer visit freely. It is also difficult for children with special educational needs to understand the sacrifices we are all having to make.
“So I am lost in admiration for the way you have used your “Dreams on Moonbeams” business to create free virtual parties that are bringing some company, kindness and love into the lives of young people when they need it the most.
“With your magical characters, like Princess Rapunzel locked down in the tower with her long hair, you are brightening up some of the toughest days for children where you live.”
“Thank you. I am delighted to be recognised for this honour, which I, in full heart, deeply accept on behalf of the wonderful children that I have been supporting throughout this difficult time. Helping the children to overcome their fears and protecting their mental health of these children has been paramount. This pandemic has isolated so many people and knowing that I have made a real difference to them means the absolute world to me.”
