Welcome to the Weightmans Dream Tree in support of Dreams Come True. This is the perfect alternative to buying a gift – and what could be better than creating a dream for a child in great need? 

Dreams Come True and Weightmans started their partnership in summer 2023 and have gone above and beyond to support us, through treks, sponsored silences and more! Now the mighty Weightmans are supporting our Festive Dream Tree to support the children who need it most, like that of Jack -

Jack is 12, loves watching YouTube and playing puzzles on his old tablet. He has spina bifida and autism, which presents itself with severe learning difficulties. He used to be able to bum shuffle, crawl and take a few steps with support, but as he grew his hip dysplasia worsened. Earlier this year he had major surgery to restructure his hip and during recovery his quality of life was substantially affected, as he was unable to move out of bed for 2 months. He may need further surgery which is distressing for the family knowing he will have to go through it all again, and they can’t prepare him as he doesn’t understand.

He has been unable to do social activities or school, so his independence has decreased substantially since the surgery. He used to spend a lot of time on his old tablet which recently broke - this has been distressing as it was often his only activity, and will be so when he has his next operation. Jack’s dream is an iPad so he can get stimulation throughout his day, whether at home or in hospital. Dreams Come True are providing Jack with a new iPad and noise cancelling headphones so he can be in his own space and feel calm. It will be exciting for him to receive his iPad and we can’t wait to share the details with you!

Together we are passionate about delivering moments of magic and having a lasting impact on those who might not even consider having a dream come true. The children we support are living in the highest areas of deprivation in the country, and are living with a disability, a serious illness, or a life-limiting condition. 

Every donation creates a shining star which will sit on our Festive Dream Tree for all to see. When you donate and are given your star, you can write a message to a colleague or loved one – or even to a child themselves. By supporting our tree, you are helping us to create a moment of magic with an incredible lasting impact.  

Join us and light up our Dream Tree so we can continue helping children who need our support more than ever.
