Danny's Dream

£5,280 of £5,000 goal

Raised by 216 people in 22 months
Katharine Hudson  Barry Community, WLS
Danny is 22 years old and our aim is for him is to be as independent as possible. He has been offered a wonderful opportunity by Bridgend College to access a new course  that would develop his life skills further. The course offers a residential placement in a purpose built shared environment linked to supported local work placements. Sadly, our local authority will not fund this year for Danny and his disability prevents him from securing any sort of student loan.  As any parent, we want to try to provide the best for our children so we have decided to go it alone and try to raise the full year costs ourselves. Danny is really excited about the prospect of continuing his links to Bridgend College and I know he would be devastated if we do not pursue this course of action to achieve his dream.

Morning everyone,
just to remind you that my friend and colleague Marie Downing is running the Cardiff half marathon in aid of Danny's Dream today. Her son Luca expects her to beat Mo ! We are so grateful to Marie for taking on this challenge for us. Thank you to all those who have supported her already. If you wish to support Marie's amazing efforts... please donate what you can. Danny is benefitting so much from this final year in Bridgend college , ensuring that he will be able to lead an independent life as possible. Any money raised through Marie's efforts today will go towards this final year. We have raised nearly £12, 000 through the efforts of people like Marie .The target is £25, 000.
Thank you all so much and a massive thanks and good luck to Marie Downing.
