Dreamflight Day Friday 17th May
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.
On Friday 17th May 2019 people from all over the UK will be coming together for Dreamflight Day, to raise money for the children attending this years trip.
Dreamflight is very close to the heart of the owner of Busy Brush Cafe, Andrew, and therefore Busy Brush will be donating all CAKE SALES sold on this day to Dreamflight. Please come along and show your support. Thank you
