As well the awards ceremony itself attendees can also look forward to the Charity Auction in aid of Dreamflight.
The Institute has been supporting charities for ten years and during that time has raised over £300,000 for ChildLine & Dreamflight. The Institute runs its annual Charity Auction at the Learning Awards each February. This year we are delighted to again announce Dreamflight as our 2015 Charity organisation.
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 sick 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.
The Charity Auction 2018 was sponsored by Happy
