One Brechin teenager had her dream come true on July 1 when she got the opportunity to meet her pop idols JLS in Edinburgh (writes Shona Beaton).

The dream would not have been possible without the help of Scottish charity, Dreamz4U who made the dream a reality.

Adele Rennie, who suffers cystic fibrosis, was presented with tickets to see JLS in June by the charity after they met her when she was in the children’s ward at Ninewells Hospital in Easter.

At the time of meeting Adele they noticed that she was wearing a JLS jumper so chief executive of Dreamz4U, Jim Michie started the process of making Adele’s dream come true.

With the help Scottish Gas Network, who raised the money to fund the dream, Dreamz4U not only managed to secure tickets for Adele to see the show, but also managed to get Adele back stage after the show to meet her pop idols.

Adele also received a framed JLS signed t-shirt that was sent to Dreamz4U from JLS’s management.

Jim Michie set up the charity Dreamz4U in April 2007 to make sick and disabled children’s dreams come true.

The charity which runs across Scotland has made over 500 children’s dreams come true.

Dreams has ranged from enabled a child to make sausage rolls to a girl getting the chance to travel to New York to watch Lady Gaga in concert.
