Huntingdonshire Philharmonic raise £100 for Dreamdrops

Thank you to the Huntingdonshire Philharmonic for a truly wonderful evening of music; Elgar, Rachmaninov Verdi, and Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana.

A full house enjoyed fabulous music, and Dreamdrops were happy to have their bucket collection at the end of the evening raising over £100.

The next performance will be the music and Opera of Carmen – something to look forward to.

Thank you to everyone involved.

Easter Egg Donations

Lynn, Community Champion for Tesco Extra Huntingdon

A big thank you to Tesco Extra Huntingdon for donating 24 Easter eggs, the Bradshaw family and Pauline Rawlings for donating 10 eggs each.

These will be given to local children under the care of the community nursing team and the complex care team, making Easter Eggstra special this year. 😊




Donation to Riverside Meadows Academy

Dreamdrops were delighted to support the Riverside Meadows Academy, St Neots, with a donation to support children’s emotional well-being in school.

The recent donation consisted of a sensory voyager, tactile tiles and bean bags for their calm room and library area.

Christine Luckham, Chairman of Dreamdrops said: “On a recent visit to the school we asked the students what would help them when they felt overwhelmed. Their response was fairy lights and a quiet area to sit and feel calmer. We hope this donation helps”.

Over £1,000 raised at our first Quiz night of the year!

Deputy Mayor Karl Brocket and Christine Luckham, Dreamdrops Chairman

Everyone had a great night at the Dreamdrops quiz evening on Friday the 9th of February at the Coneygear Centre in Huntingdon and we were pleased to be joined by the Deputy Mayor Karl Brocket and his wife Julie.

The quiz night also had a raffle with donations from the Mayor of Huntingdon and the Deputy Mayor, as well as from Naturally Social our sponsor for the evening.

12 splendid teams took part in the quiz which was well presented in a light-hearted way by our quiz master of the evening Mr Nigel Appleton.

Dreamdrops were also able to present Claire Heseltine, Riverside Meadows Academy in St Neots with three laptops courtesy of Wiltshire Digital Drive a non-profit Community Interest Company (CIC). Wiltshire Digital Drive and Naturally Social were instrumental in guiding the Dreamdrops laptops for school project during lockdown as well as hand-made lap blankets and book cushions for their calm room and library area.

Natalie Luckham from Naturally Social said: “What a successful evening and great fun too! A huge well done to everyone involved and thank you for the opportunity to support you through this sponsorship. As a business, we look to resource the difference makers in the world and Dreamdrops does just that. They make an enormous difference to the lives of so many children and young people in their community. Keep up the amazing work!”

Christine Luckham, Dreamdrops Chairman said: “A huge thank you to the Dreamdrops committee for all their help in setting up and for a highly successful evening. We raised a whopping £1,009! The fundraising will help this year’s project which is supporting children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) that are in mainstream schools.

“Over 13-15% of children in our local area with SEND are in mainstream schools. The aim is to help with resources that are not funded by education but are vital to support the emotional wellbeing of children.”
