Dreamflight is a registered UK charity that changes young lives through taking children with a serious illness or disability on the holiday of a lifetime to Orlando, Florida.
Each October, 192 children from all over the UK, accompanied by a team of medical carers, board a Boeing 747 - hired by Dreamflight - and spend a magical 10 days of fun and excitement in Orlando. Many of the children could not undertake such a trip without the support of the army of volunteer doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and non-medics who care for the children 24 hours a day.
