Please help keep Oliver's legacy alive
Oliver

In January 2008, Avril Mills BEM founded The Dream Factory in memory of her son, Oliver, who fought leukaemia for six years and sadly died aged only nine years old.

The suffering of a child affects the whole family, which is why Avril decided to start The Dream Factory in order to brighten the lives of other families with similar difficulties and create lasting memories for them.
