Welcome to our Website Les Hoey MBE DreamMaker Foundation. The good work of this group has been carried out throughout Scotland since 1992; making dreams come true for some very special children with life threatening illnesses. In September 2014 we became a registered charity to enable us to grow and bring a smile to the faces of a greater number of children.
To register with us the Scottish child with a life threatening illness must be aged between 1 year and 16 years and you must agree for us to contact consultants and hospitals.
The charity helps children and their siblings going through gruelling treatments to meet their idols. Celebrities such as Johnny Depp, Ed Sheeran, Beyonce, McBusted, The Script, and The Scotland football team. The children are also given the chance to go along to concerts, theatre shows, football games and outings to M&D’s theme park, Blair Drummond Safari park, Zoos, Restaurants or anything they desire to make their lives a little more bearable during this hard time.
Each year, we have a Christmas party for approx 300 children and their families. The party is attended by local celebrities, Motherwell Panto Stars, Bubbles the Clown. Les along with his helpers work hard throughout the year to provide entertainment and gifts for each child.
To see the children smile and for the families to have the memories of their sick children enjoying themselves is priceless and having fun instead of being in a hospital environment is amazing and all worthwhile.
We are a small charity with only 3 employees and rely on donations and support from the public. We work tirelessly night and day and would appreciate any sponsored events or fundraising nights that you could do to help us to support these children. Please use the contact us page to get in touch.
