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.

Story

My Son Elliot has cerebral palsy, this affects both his legs and means he struggles to walk normally and often trips and falls. From the age of 4yrs Elliot has worn AFO splints on both legs these are hard plastic splints to try and correct his walking and stop him from walking on his tiptoes. Unfortunately these splints are very uncomfortable to wear and have caused bllisters and rubbing to his feet on many occasions and now is unable to tolerate wearing them.

Elliot has been trialling Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) for the last 2 months. FES gives an electrical stimulation to the muscles in Elliots legs making them contract and work "normally"; as a consequence Elliot is now able to walk more easily and has not tripped or fallen since wearing them.

FES is not freely available on the NHS and he requires 2 units one for each leg.

My colleagues at work have kindly agreed to go on a sponsored walk; either 7 or 14 miles around Pitsford resevoir in April to raise funds.

We very much appreciate any support that can be offered to help us give Elliot the freedom of movement he is relishing at the present.

Thankyou
