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.


On 10th August 2018 everything changed. My beautiful, courageous, 68 year old mum Alvina Shiel had a horse riding accident that has left her paralysed. We don't know how much feeling and movement will return and it's a waiting game. My mums main goal is to ride her beloved horse Troy again. I have found a company who manufacture a hoist that attaches to the horse lorry. This will hoist mum out of her wheelchair and onto Troy. It will mean she can go out to venues and hopefully compete again. This will mean the world to both Mum and Troy and will help her recovery and to maintain some normality and independence. Horse riding is mum's life and I need your help to get this galloping granny back in the saddle.
