    Funded on Wednesday, 31st July 2019

    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.

    Story

    Albert has bilateral anophthalmia, meaning that he was born without eyes. Albert is bright, loving and a happy inspiration to all who know him, but he will never be able to see.

    As easy going as Albert is, he needs regular trips to Great Ormand Street and Moorfields Hospital for specialist care. He needs other sources of stimulation to help develop his other senses and this all comes at a price. This is why Bertie's Bikers are riding some 60 odd miles to raise as much money as possible to help Albert's Mummy and Daddy with getting him to his hospital appointments, to help provide him with the sensory equipment he needs to develop and even just to give him that little extra funding to allow him to experience things that other children take for granted.

    Thank you so much for your support. If you feel like supporting us even more then, by all means, join us for the ride! It takes part on the 14th of July 2019 and registration can be done https://www.bike-events.co.uk/Booking2.aspx?id=652&x=y .

      WE DID IT!!! After four and half hours, one crash, eight sore bottoms and one pint we finally made it! We rode through some of the most beautiful, and what seemed mountainous, countryside Essex has to offer. Who new Essex was so bloomin' hilly! We've been truly overwhelmed by the generosity and support you've all given Albert and the £5140 (where's the bold option when you need it) is a staggering figure that will literally change the life of our little Alb's Thank you all!!!

      We started this in a hope that we'd be able to make life a little easier for Albert, Phoebe, Cress and Phil and thought that we'd be able to maybe raise £1000 at most. We're now at £3500!!! Thank you to you all and especially Hattie's Heroes donation of £1000! Hattie's Heroes is a local charity raising money for local families and run by Thorpe Hall Golf Club https://m.facebook.com/thgolfheroes/?locale2=en_GB. We are feeling blessed to have them supporting Albs. X

      Just a post to say thank you. I cannot believe the support we've had from you all!!! From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so very much. This is truly unbelievable. Cressie was choked up last night with everyone's generosity as this amount is going to make life so much easier for her, Phil, Phoebe and most importantly Albert. X
