A Hainault charity which aims to brighten the lives of children and young adults with severe disabilities wants your help to make more dreams come true by contributing to a virtual Christmas tree.

The Dream Factory has launched its annual Christmas fundraiser and this year it has come up with something a little different - a virtual Christmas tree.

Rather than send a card to friends and family, you can switch on a light, hang a bauble or buy a present for the Dream Factory's virtual Christmas tree and send the link to family and friends wishing them a merry Christmas.

Avril Mills BEM, founder of the Dream Factory, said: "Please help us grant more dreams by sending a Christmas message to your friends, work colleagues and family on our virtual Christmas Tree. Help us make more dreams come true."
