A MUM won a dream night out for her family in 2005 – by making a selfless wish.

Lorraine Easden entered the Wish upon a Dream competition, run by an Erskine post office, which challenged people to sum up their heart’s desire in 100 words.

Bargarran postmaster Ken Nicholson was so touched by Lorraine’s wish that people would treat her children as they find them, not as they see them, that he awarded her the prize.

The mum-of-three said in 2005: “All my children have medical problems and I just want people to realise that what you see is not always what you get and you should treat people as you find them.”

The grand prize was a trip in a chauffeur-driven limousine to see Mother Goose at the King’s Theatre, in Glasgow.

Unfortunately, Lorraine couldn’t go herself as she had booked a holiday whilst her youngest daughter was in respite care.

But best friend Donna Barr stepped in to chaperone her daughters Amy, 12, and Nadia, 17, who invited her friend Ashley, 18.

The girls were picked up at their home in Erskine by the luxury limo and headed to Glasgow for the panto, which starred Gerard Kelly and Elaine C Smith.

Nadia said: “The limo was amazing, it was really big and we had an hour in it before the show, driving around Glasgow.

“When we got to the theatre we had good seats in the front row and it was funny.

“I was really shocked when my mum won the prize because lots of people entered and I never thought she’d win.”

Lorraine said: “The girls enjoyed it.”
