Clearvision Raises £3,825 for Dreamflight Charity

Thanks to Clearvision's partners, employees, and The Big Give's Christmas Challenge, we've raised £3,825 for Dreamflight in 2017!

It’s the time for giving, and as we get into December, the Christmas songs are sneaking onto the radio, we’re getting ready to start opening our Clearvision advent calendar, and we’ve just made our annual charity donation to Dreamflight, Clearvision’s chosen charity of the year.

Dreamflight is a UK charity that changes young lives through taking children with a serious illness or disability, without their parents, on the holiday of a lifetime to Orlando, Florida.  

Established in 1987 and operating annually since, Dreamflight believes that fun and joy are just as important as medical research and equipment – especially for children who perhaps can’t wait long enough for the breakthrough they need or whose illnesses and treatments have brought pain, distress and disruption to their lives.

We made our donation as part of The Big Give’s Christmas Challenge: a challenge taking place from 12pm Tues 28th November – 12pm Tues 5th December, during which any donation to a participating charity can be doubled.

We’re delighted to announce that, with the help of Clearvision’s partners and employees, we raised a grand total of…


That’s more than enough to fund the entire 10 day Dreamflight trip for one child next year!

From bake sales to costume contests to fundraising at the Atlassian Summit with our partners, it’s been a joint effort, and we’re thrilled with the results.

Visit the Dreamflight website for more information about the charity’s amazing work, and check out The Big Give 2017 Christmas Challenge to see all of this year’s participating charities and double your donations.
