Fun for all the family
Rachel Humphrey held her Dreams Fun Day at the weekend in memory of her son Myles whose dream we fulfilled earlier this year. It was an amazing day as Rachel told us:
The turn out was fantastic, the atmosphere was really buzzing and everyone seemed to be having a great time. There was just loads going on which made sure many people stayed a lot longer than perhaps they had planned! We had live bands, dance/music and author workshops, face-painting, hoola hooping, assault course, football skills, lots of stalls and delicious food and drink. Plus the fire brigade and the police pitched up with engine and beautiful horses in tow!
I was so moved with how my faithful band of volunteers just roped in on the day to help set things up and also make sure all ran smoothly. They all worked so hard including Sarah and Claire from the Dreams Come True Team. Sarah even roped her parents, Barbara and Robert, in to help too! It was such a special day and I have some really special memories that I will treasure for a long time. A truly fitting tribute to my very special boy Myles. In our hearts forever.
We even had an article in the Daily Mail on-line too on the day and have had some lovely messages of support and also donations to Dreams Come True on the back of it which is great.
I am so thrilled with how much money we managed to raise too, £8,000 with money still rolling in through the Online Giving site and also the ebay auction which is still live until 8.00 pm on Sunday 21st Sept. There are some great prizes to be won and so why not take a look and get bidding if you fancy your chances!
I didn't think I would be able to pull this event off but it all worked out in the end. Even though I still miss Myles so terribly it felt good to be doing something so positive in his memory and to be able to raise awareness of the great work that Dreams Come True do.
