As you will see from some of the Muscle Dreams delivered, we work hard to raise the bar in providing an inclusive experience for those with muscular dystrophy in the UK that meet our eligibility criteria.
Muscle Dreams nomination wait-list statement update (1st June 2021)
Our Muscle Dream activities continue to be very popular across the UK evidenced by the number of nominations received.
Whilst this is good news, we still have a small wait-list.
Our < 2021 > nominations process remains open for virtual Muscle Dream applications
The charity cannot make any guarantees in this financial year ie. 2021/22 as to when we might be able to fulfil any new face-to-face Muscle Dream experiences.
As always, priority is given to potential new beneficiaries who for example have not been the recipient of either a unique (singular) Muscle Dream experience (virtual or otherwise) or participated on one of the charity’s Muscle Dream signature programmes in the last two years.
Despite being a small charity < 1 full-time paid head > with limited resources, we will continue to do our best but as ever, we need help and support so we can push on with our mission.
The charity will always acknowledge Muscle Dream nominations (virtual or otherwise) and wherever possible, we will do our best to help. Thank you for your understanding at this time.
