He said yes! Celebrity Chef Colin Fassnidge made Angela's Dream come true. "I was sitting in hospital having chemo and I was offered jelly and ice cream for dinner as the dinner trolley had forgotten me... I looked at Kev and said: wouldn't it be nice to have Colin Fassnidge cook me dinner? We are big fans of My Kitchen Rules and Colin. I have always loved his accent and dark curls."
The next day Angela revealed her dream to Dream Maker Louise whose first thought was 'This is one for the Bat Phone'. The Bat Phone is our secret weapon for those tricky dreams where we need to pull some strings. Some of our wonderful supporters have joined the Bat Phone list allowing us to send them an SMS text Dream Alert.
And we were blown away! Within just five minutes, someone had responded saying they knew Colin Fassnidge and could get our message to him. We worked hard at Dream2Live4 HQ bringing all the leads together and two short hours later, we were able to ring our Dreamer and tell her it was coming true! Angela and Kev came to Sydney with hotel accommodation and lunch at Colin's fabulous 4Fourteen restaurant all organised. A romantic weekend far away from chemo wards and dinner trolleys.
Our Dreamer Angela said she couldn't believe that it was really happening. "I am very excited, and finally have something lovely to look forward to." Thank you to our kind and generous Bat Phone Dream Team, donors, and supporters. And a big Thank you to the amazing Colin Fassnidge.
"Thank you for a magical birthday weekend. The accommodation was great and out lunch at 4Fourteen was amazing and we got to meet and have a chat with the man himself Colin Fassnidge. He came in on his day off to meet me, which was lovely, and a big surprise. It totally topped off our lunch and weekend. We also had a wonderful picnic with my family at the Botanical gardens and 2 of my best friends flew over from WA to catch up. It was a magical weekend. I am now due for chemo. I cannot thank you enough. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you," said Angela.
And a HUGE thank you to the amazing Colin Fassnidge whose heart is as big as his incredible talent. What a guy!
