A brave six-year-old who has been battling cancer for the past 10 months has enjoyed a once-in-a-lifetime trip to visit Santa in Lapland.

Grace Newton’s face lit up when she met Father Christmas during a magical Christmas adventure last week organised by the When You Wish Upon a 
Star charity.

The youngster from Grangemouth was diagnosed with the bone cancer Ewing’s Sarcoma in 
February after she complained of having a sore arm. She has since been through 12 cycles of 
chemotherapy and a 10-hour operation to remove the primary tumour in her arm. Mum Grace said: “We are ending the year 
on a high.”
