PENELOPE stayed at Donna's Dream House in July 2008. Here is the letter she sent after she returned home:
I just like to say thank you ever so much for letting me and my family stay in Blackpool. We all enjoyed being in the Dream House and felt really spoiled! We loved the attractions so much that we went more than once to all of them. I absolutely loved the ride in the PINK limo (my favourite colour). I bet I will be the only child in my school who has had a drive through Blackpool in a stretched limousine. I can't wait to talk about the holiday at school.
Another brilliant bit of the holiday is that I won the X-FACTOR competition in the Tower family bar on Wednesday night. I sang the song "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" on stage and was the best singer.
We were never bored, there was always something to do. We loved all the toys in the playroom even though we didn't get a chance to play with all of them.
You are all doing such a great job, people like you are very rare. Thanks again for EVERYTHING you made possible.
Love and best wishes, God bless,
PENELOPE and family. xxx
