Dream swim with Calamity



LITTLE Thandi Murada couldn't have been happier when her wish finally came true at Coffs Harbour's Pet Porpoise Pool.

The Adelaide four-year-old got to swim with the dolphins on Friday through the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which grants wishes for kids with life-threatening illnesses.

Thandi made the trip north with her mum, Louise, dad, David, her younger brother, Elliott, and grandmother, Nancy.

"She was ecstatic. It's wonderful to see the kids enjoying themselves," Make-A-Wish Coffs Harbour president Laurie Jackson said.

"Since she's been in Coffs Harbour the colour is back in her cheeks and she's looking well."

The family was in town for a week and also spent time at the Big Banana and the Butterfly House.

"We get lots of support from local businesses to help bring children's wishes true," Mr Jackson said.

He can be contacted on 6652 3354.
