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.
During November 2017 I was admitted to Lorn & Islands District General Hospital Oban as an emergency with severe abdominal pain. After a CT scan, I was informed I needed immediate emergency surgery with no time to waste! I was suffering from diverticular disease and my colon was in danger of rupturing. Following an operation that lasted over five hours I woke up with a new attachment, a colostomy. This has obviously been a life changing experience and I could not have made the recovery I have without the love and care of my family and the fantastic team in our wee hospital in Oban. Everyone I met at the hospital was fantastic from the A&E team, cleaners, nursing staff in ward B and high dependency unit, consultants, the catering team who made real food, the list goes on! I am now planning to cycle from Kilmore Oban to Inverness 111 miles to raise money to buy something of use for the staff and patients. Don’t know what it will be yet, depends on how much I can raise
