    Story

    First of all, this is a little embarrassing! We sort of need a little help. Our daughter Megan is blind with a condition called septo-optic dysplasia. She is missing the septum in the brain and the majority of her pituitary gland. She has a diagnosis of asd on the severe end of the spectrum, with a severe learning difficulty and sensory processing issues. She also has epilepsy and panhypopitutrism.Megan has been fitting flat out recently. During 3 of her seizures she was injured. Our garden is all concrete and we haven't been able to let her play in it as its unsafe. However for some reason, anytime something is needed for a special child the price tag is through the roof! We have already spent everything we have even cancelling our family holiday to free up more cash. Ir would also be fab to have a lovely, fun therapeutic space for Megan to share with her siblings that are so good to her and adore her. Some of you may know i do a bit of voluntary work and my fab colleagues really wanted to help. Hope we don't offend by asking, please don't feel obliged! We set up this justgiving page at the request of a few members of the public that really wanted to donate. We really appreciate their kindness! Thanks for reading xx

      Update from the Page owner

      We did it yay! Ok so... Wee problem. Someone just sent me evidence of their donation and it's not showing on here. This is quite worrying! Is your donation showing? If it isn't please email us at agardenformegan@yahoo.com or private message through the "Megan's Gift" page. The page has been set up so that you can all follow progress as a lot of donations were made anonymously, if you do pop by please give us a wave 👋 😀. If anyone knows who "kevin" is we would love to thank him too! Thanks so much The Traynors xx

      Well that month has flown! We have a lot of work to do! When I set up the JustGiving account i just had a rough guestimate at how much it could take to make it safe as cheaply as possible. Never did we think we would get so close to the target! With just 3 days to go we have our invoice for what Megan really needs, the real thing and thos amount is just the tip of the iceberg! Think I need to get creative with ideas! Many thanks to all of you that have donated xx

      Wow we are so close to this target!! There will be an update in the press this week, would love to reach target by then! We just want to take a second to recognise the hard work done by everyone, the support is overwhelming and we still can't quite believe it! Special thanks go to Manus and Ailish Teague, Matthew Morrisson, Brendans bar, our "Pop up art" family and downpatrick hub for kicking our butts and starting this all off. We are forever in your debt 😇 xx

      Hi everyone! We are so overwhelmed by the love and support we have received! And to be over halfway there is amazing! Unfortunately the day we went to press the site was suffering a glitch where no one could access it to donate 🙁. Since then we have sort of come to a standstill! We are still hopeful that we might be able to do this! Fingers crossed and thanks so much to all of you that have been so kind to us. Literally every single penny counts so much! Please share as much as you can!! Lots of love, the Traynors xx
