£9,732raised of £40,000 target by 95 supporters

    Weʼve raised £9,732 to help William who has Cerebral Palsy & Epilepsy and needs 24hr care. His home needs major adaptions to enable his long term care at home.

    Funded on Thursday, 21st September 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    William is a very special 14 year old with a wicked sense of humour. He suffers from Cerebral Palsy and Epilepsy and requires 24 hour care. William has severe problems with his hips, pelvis and back and has a constant battle with pain. He has had over fifteen major operations and will require regular surgery throughout his life. William's seizures can come at any time although the majority come during sleep, which means he needs constant supervision throughout the day and night.

    William’s home needs substantial alterations to make it a safe and comfortable place for him to grow up and to enable his parents to continue his long term care. The Edkins need to raise funds to cover the cost of building a small extension to house proper bathroom/toilet facilities and a bedroom for him to grow in to. William does not have access to downstairs facilities and the bathroom is now not big enough for a wheelchair, a hoist and a care giver. His bedroom isn't big enough to accommodate his wheelchair and all the equipment he needs. This extension will also give the family extra space for live-in respite care as his care becomes more complex.

    Please help make Williams life as comfortable as possible for now and his long term future. Using this page and organising various fundraising events, we hope to raise the much needed funds.

      This page ends in 5 days but we will be back. A massive thank you to everyone who has given us support, put on events and donated over the last few months. You don't know how much it means to us, we send hugs to you all. With donations we've received off this page we are half way to raising the total we need. There are lots more things planned so keep a look out for those. Tomorrow is Williams's 15th birthday, a day full of mixed emotions. Hard to deal with the memories of what happened that day, but happy he's here to celebrate with a smile.
