Any dream is possible and when The Dream Factory
says it will take on the challenge of making a wish come true
then we will do everything in our power to make it happen in the
shortest possible time.
The Dream Factory has been created by Avril Mills, former fundraiser and events manager at Haven House Children's Hospice.
We have been fortunate in gaining the support of
a number of well known people who have agreed to become patrons
of The Dream Factory. These patrons will be attending as many of
our Events as they can and helping to raise the profile of The
Dream Factory. At the beginning of January 2008 The Dream Factory
was itself a dream, Avril knew what she wanted to do and was
prepared to work hard to make it happen.
Avril was inspired by her son Oliver who died of
Leukemia at the age of nine. While Oliver, a big Eastenders fan,
was having treatment in hospital Avril arranged for him to meet
Ross Kemp, Martine McCutcheon and Sid Owen. Liking the idea she
went onto make a wish for another child who had always wanted to
meet the Arsenal Team. Before Oliver died he expressed the wish
to grant dreams for children when he grew up.
