Afiniti Raises £4543 for Charity Dreamflight

Afiniti raised £4543 during 2014 for Dreamflight, its charity of the year.

Dreamflight changes young lives through taking seriously ill and disabled children on the holiday of a lifetime to Orlando, Florida.

The children leave their families behind giving them an opportunity to discover independence, confidence, and a whole new outlook on life.

Dreamflight children have gone on to amazing achievements. In 2008, eight of the returning Paralympians from Beijing, many of them medal-winning, had been Dreamflight children citing the trip as a turning point for them.

Marketing and Design manager at Afiniti, Lorna Gibbons, who ran for the charity throughout the year, said: “I’m delighted that Afiniti has raised so much money this year to help children’s dreams come true through the great work that Dreamflight does.”

Many Afiniti people had run for the charity throughout the year and IT equipment had been recycled to raise further money.

Jenny Hilliam of the charity’s Bedford branch said: “Once again Afiniti have pulled out all the stops to help us get Dreamflight off the ground in 2015. The £4543 that you raised in 2014 will pay for one child to experience the holiday of a lifetime and for 7 children to swim with the Dolphins, which is undoubtedly their favourite day.

“We cannot thank you enough for your continued support and we look forward to working with you in 2015/16.  A huge thank you from all at Dreamflight and the 192 very special children of 2015.”

There will be a Charity Auction for Dreamflight at the upcoming Learning and Performance Institute event, the annual Learning Awards, 5th February 2015, where Afiniti has been shortlisted for the External Learning Solution of the Year award.

Dreamflight is Afiniti’s Charity of the Year 2015. You can find out more about the charity and the great work it does here.
