    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.


    As most of our family and friends know, Charlies Story has recently been used by The Sick Childrens Trust to help raise awareness of the home from home facilities they provide to families when their children are in hospital.

    For those who dont know, this is Charlies Story so far:

    At our 32 week scan we were shocked to learn that Charlie had a blockage in his urethra which had caused substantial damage to his right kidney and doctors were unsure whether his left kidney would function after birth.

    At just 15 hours old, Charlie had his first operation at Jessop wing in the Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield to fit a suprapubic catheter, after which he was transferred to Sheffield Children’s Hospital. By the time he was eight weeks old, Charlie had undergone multiple lifesaving operations to stretch his urethra. Charlie was hospitalised again at the Sheffield Children’s Hospital at six months old due to a chest infection which led to a collapsed lung, and earlier this year in January, Charlie had to have his right kidney removed.

    We take every day as it comes, Charlie is the happiest little boy and makes everyone smile. He is really looking forward to making new friends and wants to be a footballer when he grows up

    All of Charlies operations and procedures have taken place at Sheffield Childrens Hospital and we would like to be able to give something back to both The Sick Childrens Trust and Sheffield Childrens Hospital to help say thank you for the ongoing support they give us

    We are hoping to raise this money via a variety of different fundraising events.
