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.


Hi all... Those who know me know that I've got M.E.
It has stolen so much of my life.

I used to be a very active woman. I worked full time, I'm a lone parent to my beautiful daughter.
We loved being outdoors and finding new things to do.

We ran together at weekends, parkrun. Plus I did long distance running for myself. Which I absolutely adored.

Since I've been full time ill (a little over a year) I've been housebound roughly 90% of the time.

What energy I can use, I save it to give my daughter as much as a normal childhood as I can.

But, it's difficult. I use a mobilty scooter which does help. But it has it's limitations.
This chair would open up so much more of the world for us both.
But, it's quite expensive .... And I'm out of work, so it's a catch 22 situation.

I've got £600 saved myself for a rainy day... This is that day. But I need to raise another £1000 to buy this chair.

I've never put my hand out for anything like this before, but I'm desperate I suppose.

Thank you for reading.... And if you can "thank you so much for your support"

I hope I'm doing this right 🤷🙈

      No one can foresee what happens in the future. I feel terrible that you’re unable to do what many of us take for granted. I want to see you bypassing those limitations with your new chair!
