£8,190raised of £7,000 target by 108 supporters

    Weʼve raised £8,190 to buy Craig a Wheelchair and accessories (like the one above being demoed by himself).

    Funded on Thursday, 23rd May 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.


    Craig suffers from Spinocerebella Ataxia type 1 (SCA 1). This is a late onset progressive disorder characterised by its effects on all aspects of his motor control from his ability to walk to his speech.

    Sadly he has reached the stage where he needs a wheelchair. Without a suitable wheelchair, he is becoming more isolated as day-to-day tasks are increasingly more difficult or just not possible. With the right chair he will be able to do the daily tasks we all take for granted. More poignantly he will be able to go on simple outings with his 4 year old son, such as taking him to the local park, or for a walk.

    A specialist physiotherapist has assessed Craig and recommended a light weight Pergeo Joker R2 manual chair with Triride power front, so he can independently access his local community and be more easily included in activities with his family and friends. The chair will have many adjustments to meet his specific needs.

    This equipment is just unaffordable for Craig and his family. Therefore he has taken the difficult decision of asking for help.

    In the event of there being extra monies donated, it will be put towards specialised house adjustments and appliances.

    Thank You.

      Hi I would like to say a massive thanks to everyone who has donated. I can't believe we have reached over halfway already. This is going to make such a difference to our family life. Craig will finally be able to join in with family outings and more importantly become more independent. I am overwhelmed by the support of all our family and friends. A big thank you Gareth for all your help. Thank you so much again with loads of love Tash xxx
