The Dream Factory

The Dream Factory

The Dream Factory has been set up to brighten the lives and encourage hope for children and young adults who have either life limiting or life threatening conditions, or who suffer from severe disabilities. We do this by making their wishes come true! 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 Childrenâs 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.
