A charity for children with life limiting illnesses exhibited its work last weekend.

The Dream Factory, which grants wishes to terminally ill children and their families, was hoping to raise its profile among the thousands of visitors at the Essex Indoor Family Festival at the Brentwood Centre.

Avril Mills, founder of the Hainault-based charity, said: “It was great to meet so many people and spread the word about The Dream Factory and its work. Thanks go to all The Dream Factory volunteers who came along to man the stall over the weekend.”

The charity ran a ‘guess the number of sweets’ competition which was won by Mason Balmer, seven, and Emelie Brown, six, from Hutton.
