A few words from a former Dream Fund applicant

Peter Hawkes, (Brandon's very own George Ezra, and friends, recently received some money from the Dream Fund for some new equipment for their music and sensory room.

Peter said: "We had fun looking through the computer, and putting things into a basket, I thought of things for people not so able as me, it was a nice feeling to buy them things they could use too.

"It was really fun when all the boxes started arriving. We played 'what’s in the box' and unwrapped them. Our music and sensory sessions are a lot better since all this equipment arrived. We are very lucky and happy and look forward to our sessions."
