ATD Supports Children's Charity Dreamflight
VICs (Very Important Children) return from Dreamflight 2014
Attraction Tickets Direct is honoured to support children's charity Dreamflight, a charity that gives children that are seriously ill and disabled the opportunity to experience the holiday of a lifetime in none other than the world's theme park capital, Orlando, Florida. ATD's David Gawn has just returned from Dreamflight 2014. Find out more about this holiday of a lifetime and our involvement with this charity.
Dreamflight is a registered UK charity that changes young lives by taking seriously ill and disabled children, without their parents, on the holiday of a lifetime to Orlando, Florida. 
 
Once a year, 192 deserving children from all over the UK, accompanied by a team of medical carers, board a chartered Boeing 747 and head to Florida to spend 10 magical days of fun and excitement. Many children could not undertake such a trip without the support of the army of doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and non-medical volunteers who care for the children 24 hours a day. 
 
Dreamflight, which has operated every year since 1987, believe 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.
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
ATD Travel Services are keen supporters of Dreamflight and customers should be proud to know that when they book with Attraction Tickets Direct they help us tocontribute to this amazing cause. It's a charity that we hold very close to our hearts due to our Sales and Operations Director David Gawn's personal involvement with the charity. 
 
David's involvement started once hearing about the charity. After contacting the Co-Founder he was later invited to participate in the trip as a non-medical escort. Throughout David's thirteen years of being involved with Dreamflight he has been a Group Leader and Trip Director, and is now a Trustee.
 
Every year, David sees these children's lives change tremendously as they leave behind their families and discover independence, confidence and a new outlook on life. Many of these children have gone on to become cameramen, doctors and even paralympians.
