AR26's Life Changing Experiences Takes Flight to Lapland

As AR26 Charity’s official Life Changing Experiences partner, Stewart Travel are asking you to get onboard and help support future Life Changing Experiences for children and young people across Scotland who deserve it most, by taking part in their Lapland Prize Draw launching today. Buy your potential boarding card for £10 and be in with a chance of winning a family of four, once in a lifetime - two-day trip to Lapland this December. All proceeds raised from the prize draw will go to AR26 Charity and directly fund future Life Changing Experiences for little super stars across Scotland like Zac Gunn.

Zac Gunn, 3, is a very good friend of AR26 Charity and one of our Life Changing Experience recipients. Toddler Zac from Motherwell is fighting pulmonary hypertension (PH), a rare and life-limiting condition that affects the heart and lungs and is in desperate need of a new set of lungs but, because he is so small, his donor needs to be under nine.

Zac, who carries a pump on his back which administers IV medicine into his blood 24/7, astonishes doctors and specialists with his energy and zest for life, recently winning Scotland’s Champions – Little Champion Award. The little Andy Robertson fan was delighted to be asked to launch the Stewart Travel Lapland Prize Draw today and called in help including AR26 Charity Mascot, Handy Andy, and the festive favourite himself, Santa.

As part of the partnership, Stewart Travel were sending Zac, his brother Jacob and Mum and Dad to Lapland this December, but due to Zac being on the transplant list he is unable to travel so will be treated to another Life Changing Experience involving festive fun, creating moments that last minutes, but special memories that last a lifetime.

Ashley Gunn said:

“Zac inspires us every single day and to see him make special memories with his big brother Jacob means everything to us. We can’t wait for our AR26 Charity Life Changing Experience this Christmas, sponsored by Stewart Travel and thank the charity for their ongoing support. As a family we are huge Andy Robertson fans and to have built a special friendship with his charity and witness the amazing work they do is really special to us.”

Stewart Travel are asking you to get on board and make a Life Changing Difference to little super stars like Zac and buy a potential boarding pass to Lapland this Christmas for your family. “
