Commodity has supported local charity Dreams Come True ever since Jakob and Shaun ran the first MDS in aid of this cause in 2016. We have been able to experience at first hand the positive effect that granting these wishes can have on a child’s life and on that of their loved ones. This has encouraged us to initiate and support many fundraising events with the Dreams team.
“We haven’t seen him smile like this in such a long time,
his dream will forever be etched in our hearts.”
Family of a 2017 Dreams Child
Our Current Dream Candidate
Our current Dreams candidate is 4 year old Max who has a rare chronic bone condition. Max has two older brothers for whom the charity has already fulfilled a dream as they too suffer with this painful, hereditary condition. Max would love to go on a family holiday somewhere hot with a sandy beach.
Despite all the difficulties the family deal with, Dad David makes time to raise funds for Dreams Come True by running the London Marathon!
Max – Dreams Come True
Lily-Clare, aged 10, has multiple respiratory conditions as well as a permanent collapsed lung & scoliosis. Lily-Clare is a keen horse rider and wrote to our charity partner about her dream.
Naomi was diagnosed with leukaemia at the end of 2014 and had undergone intensive treatment including a stem cell transplant. This required long periods of hospitalisation which Naomi coped with amazingly well with courage and determination.
