Charity treats youngsters like celebrities
Thursday, 05 July 2012
A GROUP of children were treated like celebrities when they were chauffeur-driven in stretched limousines to a preview screening of the film Ice Age 4.
The lucky youngsters were the guests of The Dream Factory charity, which was launched in January 2008 by Epping mother Avril Mills, after her son, Oliver, aged nine, died from leukaemia.
The charity has since fulfilled more than 150 dreams.
Lewis Lloyd, five, who has Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus, was accompanied on the dream journey by his mother, Vanessa, and sister Abby, 12.
Vanessa, said: “The charity is just so nice to be involved with and it’s lovely that other people can be involved too.”
The charity was given 20 tickets to the screening, at The Hospital Club corporate venue in London on Saturday, by a generous businessman who had bid for them in an auction.
Sixteen of the lucky party were able to travel to London from Epping in style.
Avril said: “It was really great. The children loved it and the chance for them to travel up to London in a stretch limousine made the day even more special.”
