We have been so very fortunate that over the past five years Sally Potter has been our administrator and friend. In addition, she has volunteered her time, helped to grant dreams and taken part in many events. She is, and will always be, part of Our Dream Factory Family.
Sharon, the Lady Captain of Three Rivers Golf Club, presented us with a cheque for £5779.08 in support of The Dream Factory. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Three Rivers for nominating us as their Charity of the Year and for raising such a fabulous amount.
N2Group are one of our ongoing supporters and have made us their Charity of the Year several times, producing some magnificent fundraising material on our behalf. They have recently printed fantastic leaflets and supplied us with headed paper, pull up banners, pop up banners and a wonderful flag banner.
A big thank you to Archie for raising £332.27. For over 30 years the Basildon and District Camping Group has been organising summer activity camps for young people (aged 11-18 years old) from local Boys Brigade and Girls Associations/Brigades….
Anabel & Avril visited 1st North Springfield scouts who have been fundraising for The Dream Factory over Christmas by collecting at Tesco’s. They were all very interested in hearing about what we do and they asked us many questions. They raised £434, an amazing amount that will go towards granting more Dreams.
