Ray takes The Dream Catcher Appeal to new heights

Thursday, March 8th, 2012


Pictured above is Mr Ray Johnstone Dream Catcher’s official superstar of 2012.
Mr Johnstone is a retired social worker and this year had decided to put his newly found free time to good use and hopes to raise a whopping amount for The Dream Catcher Appeal by reaching the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro.
Over the last few months i have worked very closely with Mr Johnstone and whilst putting in the hours for training and funding the cost of the trip from his own pocket he is determined that he will raise his target of £5000.00.
Ray suffers from Post-traumatic stess disorder as a result of his past experiences of being in the Army and is hoping to raise awareness of the condition whilst planning his trip.
Ray is looking forward to the challange which entails climbing a 5,895 metre summit of Mount Kilimanjarno in Tanzania with a group of fellow trekkers from the UK.
Ray likes the scope of The Dream Catcher Appeal in the fact that all monies raised and donated provide goods and services for people and charities only on the Isle Of Man and this is why he has decided to donate all funds raised on this trip to this wonderful cause.
If you would like to support Ray in way of a donation or attending one of our forthcomming events please call Nicola on 682600 or Ray on email .

Monday, April 25th, 2011

Mr Ian Cottier was the highest bidder in The Big Shout auction 2010 for Dream Catcher and today had the pleasure of turning on the Laxey Wheel for the start the season.
His family came along and a fun day was had by all. Crackers suffered a little vertigo and decided to wait at the bottom to meet the family. What a wonderful view we had from the top of the wheel and Mr Cottier and his Grandson did a great job of making the wheel turn.
Well done and thank you for your donation we hope you enjoyed your day.
