Why Dreams Come True?
My involvement with Dreams Come True initially came about through two coincidental events. Firstly, a long time friend of mine was running the London Marathon and raising money for the Charity. Secondly, a client had a daughter who was very seriously ill and had a dream fulfilled by the Charity.
The more you get to know Dream Come True as a Charity, and in particular the staff that drive the organisation, the more committed you become to their cause. Since my initial involvement I have raised significant sums of money for the Charity through sporting and sponsored activities, and I became a Trustee three years ago, taking the Chair in the middle of 2012.
There are a lot of Charities competing for funds and most of them have very worthwhile causes, but, for me personally, Dreams Come True is a very special organisation. Although being a Trustee is a huge commitment and a lot of hard work, it is all worthwhile when you see the dreams delivered to our Dream Children.
