THE talented performers at Red Dreams are cheering on England on the world stage – with the charity’s optimistic founder believing the Three Lions can go all the way.

The patriotic members of the Whitby Street South-based town music and arts charity showed their support for Roy’s Boys with the Mail’s Come on England poster.

And just five days before England get their World Cup campaign under way, Ian McManus – who founded the charity with his wife Dawn – says there’s no reason why the lads can’t lift the trophy in Brazil.

“The first thing is to make sure we get out of the group,” said Ian, 44, who set up the charity with Dawn to help youngsters after the tragic death of their son, Kyle, who suffered a brain haemorrhage and died aged just 16 in 

“But as long as we do that I think we have a chance, once you get to the knockout stages anything can happen.

“Just look at Greece in Euro 2004, nobody gave them a chance at all but they went all the way.”

Excitement is building at Red Dreams ahead of the big kick off and Ian admitted he loves the buzz ahead of a World Cup.

And he will be joining dozens of the charity’s members to watch England’s opener with Italy this Saturday night at the charity’s new state-of-the-art unit which opened earlier this year.

And the Mail’s Come on England poster takes pride of place in the facility.

The members, staff and volunteers at Red Dreams have showed their support for Roy’s boys – now it’s your turn.
