Wednesday, 19 March 2014
At the Seaton & District Lions Club March meeting, president George Mabon made a presentation of a cheque for £500 to Jeff Merrett MBE, chairman of the Dream- A-Way charity.
Dream-A-Way's aim is to assist people living in Devon, Cornwall and the Scilly Isles with physical and learning difficulties.
They provide holidays and day trips - whether it is fulfilling a lifetime dream, experiencing great opportunities or just having ‘time out’ from daily routines.
People of all ages and from around the South West are helped in every way possible to have a Dream-A-Way holiday.
The volunteer committee members use their time to raise money to fund the trips and also actively seek out opportunities to help people throughout the South West.
No one associated with Dream-A-Way receive any payments or expenses for their work. More than 99 per cent of all funds raised goes straight towards helping others.
Dream-A-Way prides itself on giving all the money to funding trips and not spending on overheads or taking any payment or expenses.
Over 8,000 people have benefited since the charity was launched in 1993.
