Future Dreams started in 2008 by mother and daughter Sylvie Henry and Danielle Leslie. By a cruel twist of fate they were both diagnosed with Breast Cancer, Danielle just 35 and a mother of 3 young children. Tragically both women lost their lives to the disease within a year of each other in 2009. Their dream to was to make sure that nobody should ever have to face this illness on their own.
Sylvie and Danielle had both trained at the Royal Academy of Dance and were qualified dance and performing arts teachers. After the success of One Night Only, another show raised funds by persuading the cream of theatre land to give their services for free. Since then FDs army of supporters has hosted annual lunches, auctions and fashion shows in Sylvie and Danielle's legacy, providing essential funding for breast cancer.
Our 3rd glittering sell out show was in memory of our founder Danielle Leslie and raised an outstanding £385,000.00
Future Dreams, supported by Estee Lauder Companies held an inspiring and moving lunch at the Art’s Club celebrating International Women’s Day. A panel of guest speakers including Victoria Derbyshire, Prue Leith CBE, Fay Ripley and Amanda Mealing took to the stage to discuss their aspirations as children and their future dreams for themselves and women today. This event raised £32,000.
