GO Scotland!


An incredible donation of nearly £3,000 has been received by The Realising Dreams Foundation thanks to the amazing generosity of those attending The Government Opportunities Scotland awards event in Glasgow (11th November 2016).

Celebrating success and recognising excellence are traits shared between our foundation and Government Opportunities (GO) who work alongside public sector procurement organsiations to share good practice and celebrate excellence.

Their national awards ceremonies are held in Cardiff, Manchester and Glasgow. We are very grateful they chose The Realising Dreams Foundation as their nominated charity at each of these events, giving people a chance to hear more about our work and make a donation.

By making a donation, guests were entered into a prize draw with a chance to win prizes including, a balloon ride for 2 people donated by Stannah, afternoon tea for 4 in Chats bar at the Glasgow Marriott hotel and a bottle of champagne.

Realising Dreams Foundation Chairman, Ron Burges expressed his gratitude. He said, “Donations are vital to allow us to support as many young people as possible. We are extremely thankful for this tremendous boost from the GO Awards Scotland.

“Both in our work in the UK and with our partner project in Tanzania, we believe we are already making a difference.

“Everyone needs someone to believe in them and, with these additional funds, our foundation will be able to support even more young people with talent, drive and ambition to realise their dreams.”
