Weʼre raising £2,000 to build a beautiful garden for 6 year old Diogo and his family... a place they can enjoy as a family.

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.
In February the Dinis family's youngest son, Diogo fell seriously ill. They have been in and out of hospital for months and I finally home, but their lives have changed forever.
My son goes to school with Diogo and his older brother and we, as parents and friends, wanted to find a way to support them. They had moved into their home a year ago and started work, but obviously everything stopped. They have a large garden, but it needs a lot of work if it is going to be accessible for a wheelchair... but more than that we want it to be a place that makes them happy, that Diogo can enjoy, where they can have family meals and make memories, somewhere tranquil.
We have gardeners and a company who have offered their time for free. They will design it and carry out all the work, but what we need is money for materials like fencing, plants, trees, decking etc. We believe this is the most positive way we can help them.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read about our fundraising and thank you so much for your support.
