“We support Dreams Come True because of the direct benefits that a dream has shown to have on the lives of seriously ill children and young people. From the children we have supported, we know that a dream helps with confidence and self-esteem, mobility and independence, and learning and communications skills. They also bring relief, respite and positive memories for children and their whole families. Despite being a small charity, Dreams Come True has a huge impact.” ~ Ian Marley, Trustee.
The Kans and Kandy Charitable Trust began supporting Dreams Come True in 2013. They have funded a range of different dreams for children living with medical conditions, including Down’s yndrome, Spina bifida, Global Developmental Delay and muscular dystrophy. The dreams have included holidays and equipment.
Postcode Community Trust is a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of the People's Postcode Lottery. Our project recevied £15,000 from the trust to develop our volunteering program as described below.
The grant from the People’s Postcode Lottery enabled us to expand the recently established volunteer programme. This funding will increase and enhance opportunities for us to broaden our volunteer support throughout England.
It will involve promoting volunteering opportunities, recruiting new volunteers, and providing volunteers with the necessary training and support.
We’re delighted to have been supported by The Kentown Wizard Foundation for a second year – with an incredible donation of £200,000!
The Kentown Wizard Foundation aims to have a positive impact on the lives of children and young people, who have a serious or life-limiting condition, through its UK grant making programme. The funding provided to Dreams Come True this year will specifically enable us to support more children and their families, from northern parts of the UK including the north of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
