Carlos’ Wish


Carlos was recently referred to us by Julia’s House Hospice in Dorset, where he receives respite care. Carlos is 13 years old and lives in Christchurch with his family.

He has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a muscular wasting condition.

Carlos takes great pleasure in playing the drums and has been having lessons. For his wish asked if we could support some additional lessons. Other than the enjoyment he gets from playing it is proving very beneficial for his muscle strength. As he is restricted in many activities it also helps him mentally to be so engaged with music.

With the support of his drum teacher, Tim Wheeler,  we are delighted to be able to help. Absolute Music in Bournemouth have kindly donated a set of electric drums to Carlos so he can practice at home. As a little extra we gave Carlos some spare drumsticks and Christmas treats.

We wish Carlos all the best with his future lessons. We think he is a star in the making.

Our special thanks to our RTCW Ambassador, Richard Carter, Ringwood 41 club and RTCW Charity Manager, Mike Turner for presenting the wish to Carlos.
