Local Charity Dream-A-Way was founded in Exeter in 1993 and provides holidays and days out for south west people of all ages who are seriously ill or have disabilities.
Dream-A-Way are an Exeter based charity supporting Devon families and are extremely proud that we are now celebrating our amazing 25th year
During this time we have made some special dreams come true for literally thousands of local families.
We have provided grants towards much deserved holidays and organised and funded outings for people of all ages with special needs, disabilities or serious illness.
For many lovely families these days out are truly major highlights in their year.
We are extremely proud that we own and, with the great help of our volunteer cleaning team, proudly maintain, a truly beautiful fleet of 9 holiday homes at beautiful Sandy Bay
Three of these are specifically adapted for wheelchair users.
These extremely popular caravans have enabled thousands of families to take time out, away from their immediate problems and to relax and refresh.
We have actually welcomed over 12,000 guests now to enjoy a holiday in one of these homes.
Just an amazing achievement which we could not possibly have imagined ever happening 25 years ago
In addition to these holidays we have also provided grants to fund very special dream holidays all over the world ,from the UK to Europe and even as far as the USA , Japan and Australia
We have really been humbled to have met some truly wonderful guests over the years and feel so privileged to have helped to make the impossible possible for such a huge number of very special Devon people.
We are immensely proud of every achievement of course but take very special pride that everything has been achieved with purely the determination of our amazing team of unpaid volunteers and with the extremely generous help and support of the people and businesses of the City of Exeter.
We do hope to continue to make some special dreams come true for very many more years to come
