A Dream Not to Never Forget

On receiving a Dream request from Darren family, and after a difficult year, the family were keen for him to experience something that would leave lasting memory. Darren is a Leeds Utd fan, and with the support from a friend of the charity, Rob Peters, we went about giving a dream day for Darren, as the club that he loves.

Darren and his family arrived at a hotel near to the ground on the Friday evening before the match and spent time as a family enjoying a meal.

Saturday morning, they were picked up and taken to the ground, Darren was taken into the legends area and met some former Leeds United players and legends.

On arrival, Darren and his family were taken on a surprise tour via the player’s tunnel onto the pitch where they met all the Leeds Utd team. Luckily there was also a club photographer, ready to capture this surprise for all the family! Naturally the excitement continued as the family were treated as honoured guests of the club and settled down to enjoy the full matchday experience.

Darrens daughter shared, “I Just want to say there would not be enough thanks for everything that Evestrust have done for my dad with a surprise visit to Leeds United!

They made a magical dream come true for my dad and his family and it’s something we will all never forget, we’ve cherished every single moment, and we will never forget this weekend!
The volunteers went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect, all the volunteers at Eve’s trust deserve a medal for all their time and efforts they give to make family’s make special memories From the bottom of my heart – THANKYOU! Natalie X”

As a charity we’d also like to say a huge thankyou to Robert Peters at KC Machine Movers Ltd, for all his help and sponsoring this dream. Also, to Dominique – Leeds united PR for helping to make the day as special as possible.

Your kindness and support have helped to create a precious memory for a whole family and we are incredibly grateful for you both.
