We inspire children to see beyond their immediate challenges and encourage them to follow their dreams and believe in themselves.
We sponsor children to assist them in fulfilling their dreams within our remit of sports, music, performing arts and technology. The sponsorship can be from learning to ride a horse, learning to play a guitar, to drama lessons as examples.
Here are a few dreams we have helped with:
Emmas Acting Dream
Emma’s dream is “to be an actress” and above you can see her recent drama performance of ‘Bugsy Malone’. Follow Your Dreams received an application to help fund her drama lessons and recently received the following message from Emma’s mum: “Thank you so much again for your help, Emma is really enjoying her drama and gets so much out of it I think that the photograph shows how much Emma’s confidence has grown and we look forward to seeing a star in the making!
Daisys Olympic Dream
Daisy who lives in Cornwall dream is “to compete in the Olympics”. Daisy is 9 years old and has been riding for just over a year and recently had a 1-2-1 training session with a Paralympic Equine Coach who was very positive about Daisy’s future in horse riding. We are delighted to support Daisy’s riding lessons at the Calvert Trust and look forward to seeing her fulfill her dream!
