In January, members of the team at The Dream Factory attended the funeral for beautiful Ruby. It was a touching tribute and celebration of her life.
Ruby’s Dream was to have a golden retriever. She named her puppy Star. But the real star was Ruby who was such a brave and beautiful young lady.
Please help to keep Oliver’s legacy alive
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.
Hard work, determination and a passion like no other, has helped Avril to keep her team and many volunteers and supporters going strong, granting nearly 500 Dreams for vulnerable children and young adults.
The Dream Factory is currently being run by a skeleton staff, volunteers and trustees. Despite this, we have still managed to grant a Dream or two during the current lockdown.
We are not classed as an essential service; consequently, the charity is not eligible for any of the Government’s current grants, which we of course understand. Sadly, due to the coronavirus, our fundraising events have been cancelled, including two golf days, a major charity garden party, and many others.
We are therefore in desperate need of funds to help us keep Oliver’s legacy going. We are asking for your support at this difficult time. So please help us to grant more Dreams by clicking on the button below.
It would be such a shame if The Dream Factory cannot keep going. We want to keep helping vulnerable families for many years to come.
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 be a princess for the day.
No wish is too small. With help from you we can make their dreams come true!
Love from The Dream Factory.
