SGI-UK organises Dream Day in Springfield Park

“I wish the young people were not killing each other,” and “I wish this tree has the power to make all these wishes come true,” were among the wishes hung on a tree in Springfield Park on Sunday.

The second Dream Day organised by Buddhist organisation SGI-UK saw almost 200 wishes written on coloured shapes by passers-by, and hung on a tree next to the park’s pond.
