Vote for Dream-A-Way- and help them win £6000!
Exeter based charity Dream-A-Way which provides holidays and outings for children and adults with disabilities and their carers throughout Devon & Cornwall, is in the running for a share of the prize money thanks to the NatWest CommunityForce project. NatWest have made a commitment to help their local communities. The result is CommunityForce – a platform that empowers local projects and charities to raise awareness of their work and make their plans a reality with the support of NatWest and their local community. 606 projects benefited last year.
By taking part in CommunityForce local charities and projects stand to win an award of £6,000 each, with the winners decided by public vote over the next two weeks. Dream-A-Way have a chance to win up to £6,000 which would all be used to help local disabled people have much needed holidays. Unlike some charities Dream-A-Way does not pay any salaries, honoraria, bonuses or personal expenses. Everyone connected with Dream-A-Way is an unpaid volunteer.

To emphasise just how much Dream-A-Way means to those who benefit from it’s services this is an example of a recent Facebook posting: "My 50 year old mum had grueling chemo. My 2 children slept on the floor for 6 months . We were granted a weeks holiday by Dream-A-Way. It made us sane again. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts xxx"
