Dreams Granted
Jacob running a-mile-a-day in aid of The Dream Factory

Jacob has completed a run with Olympic track and field star, Christine Ohuruogu.

He is running a-mile-a-day for 50 days for charity and said he was glad to have some company. He said his run was inspired by seeing reports of other youngsters raising money.

Jacob told ITV News Anglia: “I saw a little boy on telly running a mile and thought I really wanted to do that.”

Please help 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.
