Lewis spoke to many young pople around the country about challenges they had faced through their illness or disability and one answer kept coming up that they felt sad that they missed their school prom.
So last year we had our first ever prom for 150 chronically ill and disabled young people aged 15-19 at The Guildhall in Portsmouth.
It was amazing over £15,000 was raised and outfits were donated; dry cleaned and altered. We even had people doing the children’s hair and makeup was done by students from a local college!
These teens who would not have been able to attend their own schools’ proms were able to come to The Guildhall for the night of their lives!
The night was a huge success and we wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone who donated money, outfits or services and helped to make it happen. Look at this page and see the smiles you helped create - we made a great team.
I, Lewis and everyone at Friend Finder would like to say THANK YOU to you all!
