‘So far it’s been absolutely incredible so far !
I can’t thank you enough for this amazing experience’
A message from Orean’s mum:
Orean was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in 2021 . He had 6 cycles of MAP chemotherapy and further immunotherapy Mifarmutide. Orean had returned to full time education and is extremely happy to receive his MAC book pro which will assist with his course work. As a family we are thankful that through The Dream Factory he receipted this gift. Dreams do in fact come true. Remember cancer is only a part of your story, the sun will shine again.
Thank you so much to Seema and the team at The Dream Factory for our amazing weekend away! We are super grateful and appreciative of this time as a family of six and my pup Milo. We hardly get time away together due to work commitments, so it was lovely us all being together. Thank you so much, you’ve all been amazing throughout the couple of years, and I will forever remember what you have all done for me and my family.
Message from Teddies mum:
He’s got his signed shirt, every player high-fived him getting off the bus and he had a pic with one player. Thank you so much Seema, he’s had the day of his life x
Hi Seema and the Dream Factory Team. We just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to you all for our break at Center Parcs. It gave us a wonderful opportunity to spend quality time together and share priceless, memory-making moments, like Ashley effortlessly thrashing us all at Bowling and all of us coughing and spluttering in the Wave Pool. We enjoyed a great weekend, starting off visiting the Safari Park then Bowling, Archery, Badminton, Mini Golf, Pottery painting, Segways, playing Pool and obviously Swimming in the subtropical paradise. The food was great, beautiful surroundings and the weather was perfect. A fabulous, fun-filled weekend had by all, thanks to the Dream Factory. We wish you all the best and long may you continue fulfilling dreams. Warm regards. The Wottons
Ethan’s mum shared their wonderful experience: Hi Seema, As promised am emailing you to tell you what a fantastic time Ethan had (well we all did)! An amazing place. Magical for children and young adults of all ages. From start to finish Ethan didn’t stop smiling and since returning home we haven’t stopped talking about it. The experience of being in a Safari Park for 24 hours is one thing, knowing that you can just jump into the golf buggy and drive around the site was another. Our accommodation was superb, we couldn’t fault it. The view was incredible. Navigating down to the restaurant in the golf buggy early evening was fun too. Ethan managed to scatter feed the teenage male gorillas which was like something out of a movie, when they all came out running towards us. We all were in a safe area so we could throw fruit towards them. We also did an AAA safari which takes around 2 hours, getting really close to the giraffe and rhinos – and as you can see from the photos we were also lucky enough to feed them too. We can’t thank you all enough at The dream Factory. Ethan truly had a magical time. Thanks again, Tina, Andrew and Ethan Ridd.
The Dream Factory made my dream come true to see Billie Eilish in June. It was a day I could never forget and I’m very thankful to everyone who made my dream possible.
The day started with me my mum and sister getting picked up and taken to the O2 arena where we met up with Seema and Annabel. Throughout the day we went to the selfie factory, did some shopping and also had glitter on our faces ready for the concert! Spending the afternoon with my family before the show was so special as it’s something we don’t do often.
Before we headed into the arena we had a burger at Five Guys which was amazing! Lining up to get into the arena was so exciting we went to the pre-lounge where we got some drinks and there was a DJ too!
When it was time to go in I felt so excited, we got to our seats and had an amazing view. The opening act, Jesse Reyez, was amazing and then it was time for Billie!!!! To finally see the person who has helped you get through many struggles in the past few years is so surreal. She was amazing and such a great live performer. We got so close to her at one point while she was on the crane.
By the end of the show I was very emotional, I felt so much gratitude for my amazing day and seeing that my dream had just come true. I can’t thank The Dream Factory enough for my special day. I will remember it forever
Deshawn says Thank you for my Dream Came True Legoland and Hotel stay:
We love to say a big thank you to the Dream Factory for the spectacular gift bestowed onto Deshawn making his wish to go to Legoland a wish come true.
Deshawn was hit by the wow factor as soon as he landed at LEGOLAND, with the amazing displays, events and attractions.
The icing on cake was when we explained that we weren’t going home but that we were staying in the Legoland Castle Hotel. The Hotel was every little child’s dream with toys, legos and video games within the room and a world of escapism. The Dream Factory also provided Deshawn with spending money to spend in the Lego Shop.
An awesome adventure for Deshawn and we thank you From the depths of our heart.
Thank you, Dream Factory for the gift, your love and continuous support.
Lots of Love Deshawn, Crystal Noel and Baby Aria x
Thanks again for coming round this morning to surprise Deshawn. You guys made his morning and he was really happy going to school. X
This #worldprincessweek I want to talk about my favourite part of my job. @thedreamfactoryuk!
WAY back in 2017, Chloe of @letitglowprincessevents asked me to come to a Christmas party for an amazing charity, and it became the highlight of every Christmas for the next few years.
The Dream Factory has granted over 570 dreams to children and young people with life-limiting or threatening conditions/disabilities, and we’ve been able to add some magic to a few of those dreams. Avril & Team are incredible, and I’m always so excited when I get to help! The work they do is wonderful, and I definitely think you should check them out, if you haven’t already.

A Message from Sophie:
‘When I first got my cancer diagnosis , I had to put on hold or just cancel a lot of plans I had made. One thing I love is going to festivals and I had the personal goal of going to one every year. So when I was well enough to do so and offered a dream from The Dream Factory, I asked for festival tickets!
I received a ticket for myself and my sibling to go including spending money, we were also able to stay in boutique camping which was something I never thought I would be able to do!
Thank you to The Dream Factory and everyone that donated and made it possible to make my dream come true. I can’t thank you enough.’
A quote from Dorina
Hi Annabel thank you, and to those who organised this unforgettable Wimbledon experience for me. I saw some great matches on Centre Court from; Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic and Emma Raducanu. It felt special to actually be there in person and to feel the thrilling atmosphere from the crowds as we cheered the players on. I was also able to see some other well known players on the ground courts too including Alcaraz and Marton Fucsovics(who i even got a picture with!!). It was the best day i could have asked for and i really enjoyed every bit of it!
Georgina sent us this after her Dream message:
‘We had such a lovely time, thank you so much to the charity for paying for our trip. St Ives was absolutely beautiful, the weather was great too the resort was a great place to stay with wonderful facilities.
We actually decided to elope in Cornwall when we were down there! We had a little ceremony by the beach. So St Ives felt like a little honeymoon for us we are so grateful. Thank you again!’
From Maheen’s mum:
It was a really nice experience for Maheen. She was very happy. Weather was also good. So she really enjoyed. All the time she had a big smile on her face! It was a great day for Maheen. Thank you!
We received this lovely message from Mum:
We are now eating some dinner before heading home. We came third in the Monopoly game so not quite a win, but it was incredible, so many giggles.
The shard Kieron loved! He sat by the window for ages watching the trains and he loved the lifts. Nicholas wasn’t too sure on the height to start off with but after a while he was ok and got some binoculars to look out at landmarks. Oh, and Kieron brought another clock.
We have truly had the best time! Thank you.
