A grieving mum who set up a charity to make sick childrens' dreams come true has come to Windsor.

Sarah Cornelius-Price, 45, founded the Joshua Foundation in memory of the seven-year-old son she lost tocancer.

It has raised £7million over the years and Cardiff based Sarah was named Welsh Woman of the Year 2003 and Marks and Spencer's Inspirational Woman of the Year in 2007.

Two weeks ago she moved to Russell Street, Windsor with husband Benjamin, who she met when he became a volunteer with the charity.

They have moved the charity's office to nearby Castle Hill House.

Sarah said: "It is a good location from which to expand our activities in London and the South-East."

The charity organises trips and treats for terminally ill children, everything from Euro-Disney to Legoland - Legoland was one of Joshua's favourite places before his death in 1998.

It also arranges holidays, days out and opportunities to meet celebrities and group experiences like halloween, breakfast with Santa, madhatters' tea parties and Lapland trips.

The charity recently changed its name to Joshua's Wish. Sarah said: "Families come to us, or sometimes social workers ask us to help when a family has been shattered by bad news and needs a boost.

"Some children are too ill to go out. But we arranged for one child to 'buy out' a Disney store and all the goodies were delivered to the house."
