Dreamflight Presents Afiniti’s Kirsten Walker With Award

he charity Dreamflight takes 192 seriously ill and disabled children on a trip of a lifetime to Florida each year.

The trip builds vital confidence in children who have experienced such challenging times and reassures them they are not alone. Afiniti has supported Dreamflight through fundraising for several years. We’ve all been running for the charity this year and have so far raised £2,208.05 in 2014. Here is Kirsten Walker’s account of Dreamflight Bedford group’s annual awards which she attended recently on behalf of Afiniti:

‘I was lucky enough to represent Afiniti at this year’s Dreamflight Charity event at the Bedford Golf Club. It was a beautiful evening with a turnout of about 80 people. There were raffles, auctions and a tombola (a word new to me as a Canadian!).

‘I met an inspiring woman on my table that night, Natasha Baker. She is 24 and was a Dreamflight child back in the late 90’s but is now one of their biggest fundraisers and a Paralympian gold medallist in dressage from London 2012 (she is now pushing for Rio!). Her speech was touching as she attributes her success to the confidence and independence the Dreamflight trip brought her. I was the one to present her with the award of most money raised doing a skydive back in May. We were also presented with an award of our own: Special Recognition Award for our continued support.

‘It was a great night full of fun and a few tears as some really touching stories were told and really emphasised the great work Dreamflight has done and continues to do.’
