    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Amanda was left paralysed following a freak accident is using rugby to help rebuild her life. Former pub landlady her life took an abrupt change after she was found lying unconscious in a pool of blood outside the Cricketers pub in Swansea in July, 2007.

    Amanda remained in a coma for two weeks and spent nine months in hospital after being told she would spend the rest of her life paralysed from the chest down. Her condition meant she had to sell her other business, Crowley’s Rock Bar in Swansea’s Craddock Street, and face up to life in a wheelchair But despite periods of depression that followed, with the support of her daughter Stacey, Amanda has found a fresh determination to make the most of her life, and in recent times by getting involved in wheelchair rugby.

    Currently playing for the Swansea Ospreys Amanda has taken part in the team that won the 2018 super 5 S British championships in its inaugural year. The game and the camaraderie in the team has opened a whole new chapter in her life

    The Chair she is using is kindly loaned by the club, and many players, including Amanda, make the best of the chair that has not been designed for her specific paralysis and body shape, we are hoping to raise enough money for Amanda to have her body mapped and a chair built to her specific needs by Roma Sports in Bridgend Wales.
