SUPPORTING THE CHILDREN’S CHARITY, DREAMFLIGHT
As well the awards ceremony itself, attendees can also look forward to the Charity Auction and the Charity Calendar in aid of Dreamflight. We have been supporting charities for 15 years and during that time have raised over £500,000 for ChildLine and Dreamflight.
Dreamflight’s sole purpose is to take seriously ill and disabled children on their ‘holiday of a lifetime’ to Disneyworld, Florida. The registered charity is funded solely by volunteers and voluntary contributions, and has just 6 employees.
Each year, Dreamflight charters a Boeing 747 and fills it with seriously ill and disabled children from all over the UK. Accompanied by a team of voluntary medical carers, they head for Disneyworld to enjoy that holiday of a lifetime – leaving their families behind – and have the time of their lives, experiencing a freedom and independence that they may struggle to find at home. It also provides their families with a much deserved break.
CHARITY AUCTION AND CALENDAR
During the awards ceremony, we welcome on stage Patricia Pierce MBE, founder of Dreamflight, to raise awareness of the charity. Guests can donate to the charity throughout the evening via an iPad and also bid on special prizes such as sporting memorabilia and weekend breaks to famous cities around the world.
A hugely popular and highly anticipated part of the evening is the showcasing of the Charity Calendar – an annual fundraising effort spearheaded by Kelly Davis, Director of Sales and Marketing at the LPI. The calendar attracts volunteers from all areas of the L&D industry who go to incredible lengths to re-enact famous scenes from movies, TV and music. The calendar is produced and printed entirely by monies donated by sponsoring organisations, with all artwork done in-house by the LPI – and all proceeds go to Dreamflight.
