Dreamflight is a UK charity that changes young lives through taking children with a serious illness or disability, without their parents, on the holiday of a lifetime to Orlando, Florida. Established in 1987 and operating annually since, Dreamflight believes that fun and joy are just as important as medical research and equipment – especially for children who perhaps can’t wait long enough for the breakthrough they need or whose illnesses and treatments have brought pain, distress and disruption to their lives.
In 2018 we were lucky enough to have 2 Children go from our local community and amazingly both of them have connections to Herston Caravan & Campsite. Only 192 Children from the whole of the UK were lucky enough to go so the odds on 2 of ours getting chosen were quite astronomical.
The journey was amazing, not only for the kids but for the friends and family back in the UK, all following their fun daily online and please believe they really did have some!!!!
From the moment that they landed, greeted by the Florida Highway Patrol who escorted them to their hotel. This was followed by fun all through the holiday, meeting Spacemen, Superheroes, more rides than we could list, parties and to top it off swimming with dolphins.
Chaperoned by an army of volunteer Doctors, Nurses, Phycologists, and numerous British & American carers, all of whom can’t be thanked enough!!!!
As a community we want to put a bit back and have arranged a sponsored charity motorbike ride from the Ace Cafe in London to Herston, stopping at “Loomies Moto Café” on route.
We have the fabulous Blue Print Blues Brothers who have a replica Blues Brother’s Car which is going to lead the rally from London to Dorset, we just hope that their Sat Nav works and we would love you to follow. We will all meet at the Ace Cafe London by 10.30 and depart approx 11.30. On route we will stop for lunch at Loomies cafe and then from there to Swanage Dorset.
For those that want to stay with us and party after the ride and for anyone else who wishes to join us for a fun packed weekend celebrating Dreamflight please get your tickets which include a weekends camping. Please join us for a weekend’s fun and celebration with great food entertainment, raffle, loads of laughs and a couple of bevies whilst helping the future Dreamflight kiddies.
We already have the “Blueprint Brothers” who are headlining Saturday and as luck would have it at the same time we have our Blues Brothers fancy dress theme. Plenty of more great acts and entertainment to be confirmed. Please see website for updated details.
