Weʼre raising £200 to help support the Daisy Palmer Trust
- Langdon Hills, Basildon, UK
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.
One day at the beginning of 2018, I went to meet a lady called Tracy and a dog called Max.... Max was being considered for training as Tracy’s daughter’s service dog and they were looking for a dog walker. In a perfect demonstration of what a small world we live in, Tracy’s daughter turned out to be Daisy Palmer, a young lady who my sons had been at primary school with.
Daisy suffers from a rare illness called Chronic Intestine Pseudo-Obstruction which means she is unable to eat or digest anything at all. Over the past few months I have been humbled and touched by this brave, strong, cheerful girl who smiles her way through life despite the difficulties she faces.
On 8th September 2018, I shall be running 100km (crazy, stupid....yes?) and I am doing this for lovely Daisy. Whatever I go through during this endurance race will be insignificant to the challenges she faces on a daily basis.
Please donate any amount you can towards this worthy cause and help make Daisy’s life as comfortable as possible. Daisy, her family and I would be very grateful xx
