Weʼre raising £6,000 to buy our friend Michelle a specialist disability bed to ease her chronic pain and make life a little better.
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.
Hi guys. Woody’s Godmother, Michelle, has suffered with multiple conditions and chronic pain for many years now. Her hospital grade bed at home is broken, and social services and the council are trying to avoid paying for a replacement. If they do ever gain a conscience, it won‘t be for a very long time and the replacement bed will be thirdhand and insufficient for Michelle’s needs. As she is virtually bed bound, this has made her feel extremely vulnerable, and so it is of the utmost importance that we sort this out IMMEDIATELY. Getting her the bed she needs will dramatically improve her quality of life. The health minister and the local MP have been notified many times but still nothing gets done. I have known Michelle for twenty years and she has never complained about anything and would NEVER ask for your help, so that is why I am asking on her behalf. You have no idea how much of a difference this bed will make to her daily life, giving her her independence and some dignity back. So please please please give what you can for this very worthy cause. Michelle is the kindest person I know and is always putting others before herself so now it‘s our turn. Every day she spends in her broken bed is another day of severe discomfort so time is of the essence. Let’s do this for Michelle, everyone! Many thanks in advance to you all for your generosity. Adrian xx

Thank you for doing this. Michelle is the kindest and strongest person I know. She has the most amazing inner strength and she has touched me and changed my life in ways I cannot explain.
