Dreamflight

Dreamflight's aim is to take children with a serious illness or disability to Orlando for the holiday of a lifetime visiting the theme parks. To bring some fun and joy to these children whose illnesses cause pain, distress and disruption to their lives.

Story

On the 15th July 2012 we are flying out to Japan with 40 other nutters, ahem.... all-round good people for the 3rd Annual British Airways and Dreamflight Mount Fuji Trek.

Please could we take 5 minutes of your time to explain why we're going to climb 12,389 feet and also try to relieve you of some cash?

Dreamflight is a UK registered charity that takes seriously ill and disabled children on the holiday of a lifetime to Orlando, Florida.

Dreamflight is not just a holiday though. The children leave their families behind giving them an opportunity to discover independence, confidence, and a whole new outlook on life. Often for the first time, these children realise that they are not alone, and they are not the odd one out. They see children around them who have also suffered, they gain perspective, and experience things they never thought possible.

Dreamflight children have gone on to amazing achievements. In 2008, 8 of the returning Paralympians from Beijing, many of them medal-winning, had been Dreamflight children citing the trip as a turning point for them.

Dreamflight is funded solely by voluntary contributions and the cost of sending one child on their holiday of a lifetime is £3500.

"Changing Lives" is at the heart of Dreamflight. Please could you help us change one life by helping us towards our target of £3500?
