Please help Dreams come true

Our Appeal

 April 2020

The future of our amazing charity is under threat. With all of our fundraising and challenges postponed or cancelled, our funds have drastically been affected. This means our ability to grant children’s dreams is sadly also under threat.

We are reaching out to you all during these uncertain and worrying times for your help.  Please donate to our Appeal to enable our amazing charity to continue in the future to grant children’s dreams and create everlasting memories for their families.

With help from you, we can make dreams come true!

The Dream Factory

making dreams come true

The Dream Factory was founded to brighten the lives and encourage hope for children and young adults aged 3-25 years who have either life-limiting or life-threatening conditions, or who suffer from severe disabilities.

We aim to do everything possible to grant a child’s dream, whether it’s to meet their favourite celebrity or sporting hero, to live the lifestyle of a millionaire for a day, or to own a laptop or the latest mobile phone. Perhaps they wish to take a magical trip to Lapland or Euro Disney or to be a princess for the day. No wish is too small. With help from you, we can make their dreams come true!
