Rathgormack National School's Cake Sale

Shout out to the students of the ‘Rathgormack National School’ and their teacher, Ms. Deborah Cahill, for hosting a cake sale and donating their communion money in aid of Share a Dream. So, blown away by the wonderful support by these young children Shay Kinsella decided to take his Dream Team to their school on the 30th of July to put on a character show for everyone. The children students raised an astonishing €510.

Woody and friends surprise Harry

Harry Dore is a gorgeous little 8 year old boy from Corbally Limerick who suffers with various medical issues including Autism Spectrum Disorder and Epilepsy.

After spending a few hours with Harry, and his parents Louise and Ciaran and brothers, Billy and Daniel, I really appreciate the absolute the challenge facing parents of children with autism, not just on a daily basis, but on an hourly basis.

There is absolutely no time to relax or socialise or even get a break away. It is non-stop attention. I found it exhausting so God only knows what these young parents have to endure... and always with a smile and good humour.

You are all truly wonderful parents who love their children dearly and work so hard to give them some quality of life and I salute each and every one of you!!

This is why I want to build Dreamland Limerick.

When the Dream Team received a request from his mum Louise, the team immediately got to work to realise this courageous boys' dream. So, Woody along with his friends and the Dream Machine arrived to Harry's home yesterday where they put on a special show for Harry, his family and friends. Later Harry and his new friends got to explore the inside of the magical Dream Machine for 2 hours.

His Mum couldn't believe how relaxed he was in the Dream Machine and the fact after two hours he didn't want to get out.

"Thank you so much for calling to Harry with the Dream Machine as he is deprived of so much with his autism, he was thrilled and the excitement was magical. We are so grateful to everyone in the Share A Dream Foundation for making Harry smile" said mum Louise. "Just to see him laugh and play with his brothers, cousins and friends gave him a bit of normality in his life was unbelievable".
