Dreamflight is a 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 year, 192 children accompanied by a team of medical carers spend a magical 10 days of fun and excitement in Orlando many of whom could not take such a trip without the support of an army of volunteer doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and non-medics who care for the children 24 hours a day. It is a charity that is very close to Alex’s heart and one that he plans to support for many years to come.
