    Weʼve raised £900 to get a Bike for Fin

    Catterick, United Kingdom
    Funded on Thursday, 13th July 2017

    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.


    **We've had to increase our target amount having received a more accurate quotation for fitting the bike for Fin.**

    Meet Fin. He is an amazing 9 year old.Fin has Spastic Cerebral Palsy affecting his legs making him unable to walk without his crutches or walking frame.
    First diagnosed at 13 months old when he was unable to sit unsupported or walk. He has come on such a journey to get where he is today.Teaching himself to crawl, then stand supported, he soon mastered the walking frame eventually with his positive attitude progressing onto crutches.
    He does get tired very easily with the massive effort he puts in and this is one of the downside to his condition.
    Fin lives at home here in North Yorkshire with his Mum and two sisters.
    Dad, who is a serving member of the Armed Forces and his older brother live in Manchester.
    Fin is a friendly child who is confident and well liked by his peers. You can't help but be happy when around him because of his infectious smile and sense of humour. He is very determined throwing himself into all aspects of school life. He can become upset and emotional if he is unable to do anything.
    I have worked with Fin everyday since he joined our school in Foundation and he is now in Year 4.
    I want with your help to raise funds to get him a Running Bike called a "RaceRunner" which will be personalised to support Fin. Seen in the photo above having a trial.
    Myself and 2 other members of staff, Jen Bell and Alastair Camm will be collectively cycling 100 miles through the gorgeous Yorkshire Dales following part of the Tour de France route for Fin.
    Thank you for reading the above and Thank you for your donation.

      My daughter Libby is in your class at school, and was really upset we couldn't participate in your bag pack tomorrow. She would like to donate her pocket money to your fund. X
