Thank you for visiting this page.
I aim to raise £75,000, which involves everyone on my mailing list donating just £5. There is no obligation on you to make a donation - my bulletins will always be free of charge - but if you find them of value please consider this entirely voluntary donation.
I've chosen Dreams Come True as the recipient of all donations. I set out an extract from their website below (more information can be seen at http://www.dctc.org.uk/)...
"All children have dreams, but how many get the chance to turn their dream into reality? For all children this would be a magical moment, but for those suffering from a life-threatening illness or a long-term debilitating condition, it can have an even greater impact.
"Each year Dreams Come True Charity brings a smile to the faces of hundreds of children and young adults between 2 and 21 years, who are suffering from a serious or terminal illness. It aims to bring some happiness into their lives, the benefits of which are many and varied for both the children and their families.
"Popular requests include experiencing the magic of Disney, and swimming with dolphins. But any dream is shaped by a child's imagination and special needs, leading to a seemingly endless range of possibilities. Some of the more 'unusual' dream requests they have recently fullfilled include going on a cruise, meeting long-lost relatives in Kenya and Jamaica, naming a police horse, and riding in a rally car. Quality of life can be improved by having a specially adapted bed, or a TV or music centre for a bedroom where the children spend a lot of their time, or by having a special trike enabling children to keep up with your friends playing outside. For some it's the simpler things in life: a trip to Butlins and the seaside, or even for one boy, the chance to see bananas growing on a real tree."
Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to donate: Dreams Come True Charity will receive your money faster and, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.
So please donate now - just £5 from you will help achieve the £75,000 target.
Many thanks for your support.
