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.


Alfie was born premature at 28 weeks weighing 2lb 4oz. Due to complications, Alfie at the age of 8yrs, now has a diagnosis of cerebral palsy and global delay. As a result Alfie has been left non mobile and relies on the day-to-day support of others to carry out basic tasks. He needs specialist therapies and equipment to maintain a good quality of life and to enable him to access the world around him. Sadly this all comes at a cost and as his parents we want to do everything possible to enable him to achieve his goals. To help Alfie we want to purchase an electric wheelchair that will enable him to become more independent at school and amongst his peers. A suitable chair will cost in the region of £9,000 plus annual fees of maintenance. Alfie has a Zest for life and is an inspiration to anybody who is lucky enough to meet him and we ask you to support us to help raise the funds to make his life that little bit more easier for him and to support him on his journey through life.

    A big thankyou again for all the support to help get Alfie a powered chair. As the cost is so high we are trying to get some funding through wheelchair services. As you can imagine it is a long process and Alfie has to fit certain criteria. Alfie has another asessment with them today so fingers crossed and please keep sharing x

    A huge thankyou to everyone who has helped towards Alfie receiving a powered chair more of a reality. As the cost of the chair is so high, we are waiting to see if Wheel Chair services can offer any financial support towards the chair but it means we have to go through a referral process with them again, which could take some time. Will keep you updated but thanks again for the shares and support.
