People respond to personal tragedy in different ways but we should all be inspired by how 10-year-old Emily Magee from Fermanagh turned the death of her little brother in a family farm accident into the creation of special wishes for children with serious illnesses.

She raised an astonishing £20,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation and received her own magical gift.

Emily and her family were guests of honour at the premiere of the Disney film Aladdin and met stars Will Smith and Naomi Scott. Coming shortly before what would have been her brother's seventh birthday, it was an opportunity for them all to remember him with a smile on their faces.
