As a disabled child Hilary found that obtaining funding for activity was relatively straightforward. However, when she reached 18, many sources of funding dried up. Hilary was extremely fortunate to find sponsors in Andrew Pindar and UKSA who made it possible for her to sail the Channel. She wanted to make sure that other disabled and disadvantaged adults would have somewhere to turn for help and Hilary's Dream Trust was formed.
We can help individuals by acting as a source of information or by helping with financial support of a project.
All we ask in return, if appropriate, is that you to help raise money and awareness for the trust so that others can be helped.
If you are 18 or over and are disabled or financially disadvantaged then you may well be eligible for grant.
You can donate money directly using BT's MyDonate or by sending a cheque to Hilary's Dream Trust, The Willows, Dawes Road, Dunkirk, Kent ME13 9TP.
You can raise money in many different ways, from sponsored cycle rides to sitting in a bath of baked beans…
