A LITTLE girl's dream to visit Disneyland Paris has come true after a group of mums pulled together.
Dubbed the Charlie's Angels, the four friends raised more than �4,000 to send young Charlie Hall on the once-in-a-lifetime trip.
Charlie, who has the life-limiting illness Rett Syndrome, is unable to talk or walk.
The nine-year-old from The Commons, WGC, is set to undergo an operation on her spine later this year, meaning she will never be able to go on rides again.
So Charlie's Angels felt it was now or never to raise the cash.
Vanessa Moore, Lisa Lester, Claire Hattam and Charlie's mum Laura organised a car wash at WGC fire station and a bike ride, manned a car park for the day and organised a charity night and auction.

Their fundraising was so successful they had more than �2,000 left over, which they are donating to Keech Cottage Children's Hospice, which supports Charlie, Laura, dad Allen and 10-year-old sister Shannon.
Mum Laura, 28, said: "Charlie seems happy about it, she loves all the Disney films.
"All the colours will be great stimulation for her."
Charlie's Angel Claire, a 34-year-old mum-of-one, added: "This is very much worth all the hard work.
