Taylor Made Dreams is named as People's Choice in national vote

The Crowborough-based organisation’s founder, Suzi Mitchell, received the accolade at London’s Royal Horseguards Hotel.

Taylor Made Dreams was chosen out of more than 750 entries nationwide. It was on a shortlist of three in the Best Community Group Contribution to Health and Wellbeing category.

Groundwork is a federation of charities aiming to transform lives in the UK’s most disadvantaged communities. Voting was open to the general public.

The awards recognise grassroots community groups and leaders who make a difference to people’s quality of life.

Taylor Made Dreams fulfils bucket lists for children with life-limiting illnesses, while also providing holistic support and counselling to their families. It has organised more than 850 ‘dreams’. Last month, 12-year-old Theo Achato learned to bake a triple chocolate cake and was presented with a MasterChef trophy by presenter Gregg Wallace.

The charity raises money through corporate sponsorship and fundraising events across Kent and East Sussex, where the families it supports are largely based.

Suzi said: “I cannot express my thanks enough for all those who voted for Taylor Made Dreams to win this national award.

“This means that there is greater awareness about our charity and will hopefully enable us to raise more funds and help more children and their families.”

Currently, Suzi is seeking partnerships with businesses, or donations, to buy medical sheepskin fleeces (£40 each) for the children they support.
