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.
On an ordinary night in March 2017 my father Charles Kerr was taken ill with a stroke that left him with a bleed on the brain and 4 bouts of pneumonia right after.He spent weeks recovering and falling ill again in hospital to the point we were told he wouldn't make it through another night..None the less he proved us all wrong and fully recovered and came home! He was a real fighter!
With help from the stroke society we were able to help our Dad settle back into daily life as best as we could,he was no longer able to eat by himself or walk but with the help provided we where able to provide him comfort and more time with loved ones.This was the greatest gift we could have had in the 12 months we had left with him.
Stroke needs more attention in the UK and we need your help.Holding my fathers hands in which he once held me up high in his arms is an unexplainable heartache that i never wish upon anyone.It can turn the strongest of fighters to being almost helpless.
The Stroke Association provides a wide range of Life After Stroke services to meet the needs of stroke survivors and carers across the UK. Services include the Stroke Recovery Service, Communication Support Service, Emotional Support Service, Exercise-based Rehabilitation Service, Post Stroke Review service and Caring and You; which helped over 58,000 stroke survivors across the UK in 2016-17. These services operate in England (including the Isle of Man and Jersey), Wales and Northern Ireland
On the 20th of April our dad,Charles Kerr passed away surrounded by his family and love.We will always love and miss you dad.This is for you!
Donation proceedings will go towards the Stroke society and our dads gravestone once ready.We would like to thank everyone for your kind donations and best of wishes! xxxx
