THREE Rastrick children are smiling again after a family tragedy.
Jordan, nine, Danny, four, and baby William, one, enjoyed an activity weekend with dad James Kaye and grandparents Ann and Steve Fitt.
The children tragically lost their mother, Sally Ann Kaye, last summer. She was just 30.
Mrs Kaye, who was on maternity leave from her job as a psychiatric nurse, went to bed felling unwell and never woke up.
A post-mortem revealed she had bronchial pneumonia.
The children were nominated for the Examiner's Christmas Wish campaign, which it ran leading up to the festive season with Huddersfield Pendragon Round Table.
The Center Parcs leisure company was so touched by the family's plight that it offered them a weekend break at Oasis Whinfell Forest in the Lake District.
The family have just gone on the break - and had a fabulous time.
"We really enjoyed ourselves and the weather was brilliant. Jordan and Danny had a great time riding their bikes," said Mrs Fitt, Mrs Kaye's mother.
"I just want to say thank you so much for organising the trip.
"It was a terrible shock to us all. We told Danny and Jordan their mummy was in heaven, but William will never know his mummy," added Mrs Fitt.
The Examiner teamed up with Huddersfield Pendragon Round Table to bring festive cheer to children and adults throughout the area who had suffered illness and hardship throughout the year.
