A SEVEN-year-old boy from Hixon will be achieving his dream in October when he plays zoo keeper for the day.

As reported, Josh Johns has become a little celebrity after receiving more than 800 postcards from around the world wishing him well during his leukaemia treatment.

Josh’s favourite postcards are ones with animals and as if having the kind thoughts of hundreds of people wasn’t enough to put a smile on his face, Josh is beaming even more anticipating a trip to Longleat Safari Park.

Josh’s dad, Jason, said: “As part of the Make a Wish charity, Josh was offered the chance to take a zoo keeper experience.

“He will go around in a 4x4 and gets to feeds giraffes, tigers and pretty much anything, on a guided tour. He’s so excited.”
