    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.


    I have recentley been diagnosed with a rare form of vasculitus, which is an auto immune disease ,from that i took a secondary spinal chord stroke, i have been left unable to walk and am now paraplegic,I worked for 25 years in NHS up until i took sick this March 2017 I am 53 and female. i live in my lovely spacious apartment for 12 years but is 3 flights up, we are hiring a stairclimber at the moment to allow me to go to appointments and outings but could not keep this up longterm, the cost of a new one is £6,800 + vat, we have tried for other forms of funding to help but so far no response, if I had a stairclimber of my own it would give me the ability to stay in my apartment and have a better quality of life being able to go out whenever i want to.

    Thanks for reading my story

      Hi Everyone, I would like to give you all a wee update. If you had read my wee story you would have noticed that I had applied for a grant from the Heart Stroke & Chest Foundation. I received good news they have awarded me £1000. This will go towards my stairclimber and will take us over the halfway mark!! So happy for everyones donations. Can’t believe how generous everyone has been. I wish I knew who the anonymous donations were from so I could thank them personally. Thanks again to everyone. Anne xxx
