    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, My name is Vicky, I am Lena's Mother.
    My daughter Lena is 16 yr old. Lena was born with Cerebral Palsy which effects all four limbs. Lena is a very happy young lady who never complains about anything. If you ever met her, her smile lights up a room. When Lena was 6 yrs old, she had an hip operation to try to improve her mobility but unfortunately it was unsuccessful and has left Lena with no mobility what so ever.
    I would like to raise funds to take Lena to the USA to undergo treatment that would improve her quality of life. unfortunately, in this country, the treatment is unavailable but after her last operation I would not want her to suffer again! After constant research in this in this I have found that the USA are the top of the tree in this treatment and as a mother, I feel I owe this to my daughter to give her a chance.
    What I am going to do is ask friends, family and people who would like to arrange fundraising events or even donate to Lena's cause! Even if it's £1, it all adds up and all counts.
    I have just set up a Facebook account so I will be able to keep you posted on the progress and also will update you with pictures. Lena is happy to answer your questions if you would like to message her on Facebook.....Lena Tavarozzi.
    Be well.
    Love Vicky and Lena

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
