Weʼve raised £565 to Help a mum take her children to school and the park.
- Funded on Saturday, 1st September 2018
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.
My name is Ann and I have a wonderful, inspirational, amazing friend called Kirsty.
Kirsty was born with a neuroblastoma on her spine and as such has spent her life in a wheelchair. She has never given up and has learnt to drive, gone to university, fallen in love and had two wonderful children. Her partner Mat is her carer but she does as much as she can herself. This year her oldest child Holly started school and as her school is within walking distance of her house, she paid for an attachment to her chair called a firefly. This attachment allows her to use her wheelchair like a motorised tricycle and is battery operated. They couldn't afford it but knowing what a difference it would make they spent £2000 getting this attachment. After nearly six months of problems the machine has now been deemed not fit for purpose. Due to the issues Kirsty has with her legs she needs a specific wheelchair and attachment which will cost in excess of £5000.
As her partner is her full time carer, he doesn't have a job and Kirsty is not in a position herself to work. All she wants is to have some independence, take her little girl to school herself, take both her children to the park or forest and have fun. She wants as much independence as she can get. She has never been able to hold her partners hand along the street as he has always had to push her chair. If she is independently mobile they could hold hands and walk their little girl to school together.
We all take for granted the little things in life but to Kirsty and her family this would make the little things a reality and so much more.
If you think you can help, please no matter how big or small then donate as everything helps.
