A YOUNGSTER had an unbelievable trip to Lapland not only to see Santa, but also Emmerdale cast members and football pundit Chris Kamara.

Eleven-year-old Liam Dunne is bravely battling rhabdomyosarca - which affects his muscles and causes soft tissue tumours - however the Balby youngster has not let his illness hold him back having raised plenty of cash for worthy causes.

The When You Wish Upon A Star charity made Liam’s Christmas by sending him to Lapland with soap stars, such as Emma Atkins who plays Emmerdale’s Charity Sharma (pictured), and Sky Sports pundit Kamara, where they rode snow quads and sleighs before meeting Santa.
