An 11-year-old girl had her wish granted by spending the day at the Battersea Dogs & Cats Home in Old Windsor.
Imogen Richings, from Coulsdon, London, was diagnosed with life threatening cancer acute lymphoblastic leukemia in September 2011.
She spent a lot of time in hospital for treatment away from home; yet was very brave and determined.
Her mum Celia contacted Starlight Children’s foundation, the wish-granting charity for children with serious and terminal illnesses, as Imogen always wanted to visit the world famous Battersea.
Celia said of their visit on November 1: "We all had a wonderful time finding out more about what Battersea does and meeting some of the lovely animals in their care."
Kaye Mughal, centre manager at Battersea Old Windsor, added: "Spending time with animals can be very therapeutic, and that was certainly highlighted today.”
