Sophie Rolf’s family meet One Direction star and more at charity ball
THE family of Sophie Rolf rubbed shoulders with some of the world’s best-known celebrities at an event hosted by a charity close to their hearts.
Sophie’s mother Gemma Blamire, father Aaron Rolf and brother Jack attended the Believe in Magic Cinderella Ball event at the Natural History Museum, and even recorded a video saying what the charity founder Meg Bhari, had done for them.
The charity helps terminally ill children and when Sophie, who died aged just six, was battling an inoperable brain tumour, Meg arranged a host of magical trips including visits to Buckingham Palace, Hamleys toy shop, Harrods and to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The ball was hosted by One Direction member Louis Tomlinson, and guests included colleague Liam Payne, X Factor winner Ben Haenow, footballer Radamel Falcao, and illusionist Dynamo.
Learning to smile again without Our little Butterfly has got to be one of the toughest things… Last week we were invited by Meg and Jean our friends from Believe in Magic to a Cinderella Ball. We cannot thank them enough for making Sophie so much still part of it with all those little touches, they made us smile. Jack made us so proud once again summing both Meg and Jean up in his speech.. Crazy, Epic and more Crazy… Sophie would of been so happy.
We then went on to Disney with 10 other families with Amazing children. When Meg and Jean asked us to help it was tough to do another first without Sophie especially with so many other poorly children but Meg made Sophie so happy and was the inspiration behind Kissypuppy – Sophie wanted to help other children like Meg did. This was our chance to be able to give something back. Seeing those children’s smiles made it so much easier.
