Amber Filson is doing the parish walk this year for Oskar's Dreams. The following is Amber's story taken from her just giving page. We are very grateful to Amber for choosing our charity & wish her the very best of luck! Dawn & Aly.
This time last year if i had been asked to do the parish walk I think I would have just laughed! My fitness was very poor and it took until January 2013 to realise that things needed to change.
I am not to my fullest fitness level yet, but would like to achieve 32 miles and make it to Peel.
I would like to keep motivated through out the walk and by doing this I have chosen Oskar's Dreams as my charity to raise money for.
Jade Quirk who has lived across the road from me for 9 years lost her life to cancer in March this year, age just 17 she had so much to give and it is heartbreaking to see young people struggle with illness and then sadly lose the fight.
Oskar's dreams is a charity that was very close to Jade's Heart and I know she will be very proud to see money going to a great cause and carrying on the memory of Oskar and Jade x

Oskar’s Dreams were very proud to be able to donate pieces of sensory equipment to Rebecca House recently. The amount of £8,489 paid for the Caterpillar (pictured) a music box and further equipment for the Dream Room. The Dream room is a multi-sensory interactive room used by the children that attend Rebecca House, the children’s unit of Hospice Isle of Man.
Staff from local company ILS Fiduciaries (Isle of Man) Limited presented the proceeds of their dress down days held during 2008 to Oskar’s Dreams recently.
A family fun day raised valuable funds for Oskar’s Dreams. The event was held in the grounds of the Nunnery with the marquee being sponsored by local company Equiom; MannVend sponsored all the drinks. Nearly £6,000 was raised during the day which included a raffle and an auction.
We are indebted to Isle of Man Newspapers - for their support since the beginning of Oskars Dreams Trust.
