    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.


    Like every 4 year old, Zacky deserves to have the opportunity to be in the right learning environment to thrive and develop in the best way possible.
    Zacky was diagnosed with a rare genetic condition (KCNQ2), which requires very specialised support to meet all of his educational, therapeutic and care needs, such as specialist therapies and direct access to on site care facilities.

    Zacky faces every day life with a number of complex conditions:
    Visual impairment
    Learning disability
    Generalised dystonia (muscle spasms)
    He is unable to talk
    He is unable to feed orally and so is tube fed
    He is unable to walk

    Unfortunately there is a lengthy, costly and complex process that we have to go through for Zacky to be assessed correctly. The money we raise will enable us to get independent reports from:
    • Occupational therapist
    • Physiotherapist
    • Speech and language therapist
    * Educational Psychologist
    * Plus independent legal representation to present Zacky’s case

    This will go towards helping us to make sure Zacky’s future is in the absolute best hands at such a critical time.

    Friends and family have been amazing which we are eternally grateful for, offering support, giving up their time and raising money on behalf of Zacky’s fund.

    If you would like to get involved in a fund raising event or challenge please get in touch so we can support in any way we can.
