Boogie Storm visit the Clatterbridge Cancer Centre

Callum and Reece Holt and Taylor Seddon with Boogie Storm.

BRITAIN'S Got Talent sensations Boogie Storm brought The Force to The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust.

The dancing Storm Troopers from Liverpool visited the Merseyside hospital to meet two young Star Wars fans.

As a special treat for the boys and other patients, staff and visitors, they performed the famous routine which earned them the Gold Buzzer from Simon Cowell on the TV talent show.

On the front row of the audience were Taylor Seddon, 6, and 10 year-old Reece Holt, who are both receiving radiotherapy treatment for brain tumours.

Boogie Storm show their support for The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity

After watching the show alongside his 9 year old brother Callum, Reece from Morcambe in Lancashire, said:- "They were awesome. I loved it."

His mum Rachel O'Neil added:- "We can't put into words how amazing that was. What they have done for the boys is wonderful – human nature at its best."

Taylor, from Burscough in Lancashire, who loves Star Wars Lego, was kitted out in his own Storm Trooper outfit for the day.  His mum Jane said:- "That was a few minutes that he will look back on for years and what he will remember about The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre. Everyone here has been so kind and so supportive and this was the icing on the cake."

Lee Seddon, the man behind Boogie Storm, heard about Taylor and Reece from staff and was determined to bring the Storm Troopers to The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre to meet the boys. He said:- "We found out they were massive Star Wars fans so we really wanted to come here to do this for them. It was great to meet them and we hope we have brought a bit of happiness into their lives for the day. Boogie Storm wanted to put a smile on their faces and I think we did that."

Sarah Stead, Paediatric Specialist Radiotherapist at The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre, said:- "Having Boogie Storm here was a real boost for Taylor and Reece. Seeing their faces when the dance started was lovely. Children undergoing this type of treatment can spend a lot of time in different Hospitals undergoing different types of procedures and treatments. We do everything we can do to make their experience here at Clatterbridge as good as possible and we hope today is something they will always remember."
