Weʼre raising £15,000 to Help fund a new prosthetic limb
- 5 days to go
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.
I am setting this crowdfunding page for my beautiful wife Claire. Claire has been a lower limb amputee since the age of 7. She is now 44 and all her life she has been reliant on NHS prosthetics. These are ok but very basic, limiting and are not astetically pleasing, due to the constraints of NHS funding. Because Claire has never been able to afford a private prothetic, Claire has made the very best of the situation and she has always tackled life with a positive attitude.
However, Claire is now looking to pursue her dreams of becomimg a professional performer, singer and participating in film extra work. In addition, she is also embarking on more physical fitness and exercise. Unfortunately her current NHS prosthetic is proving an impossible barrier to this, because it does not offer the support, comfort or aesthetic qualities required.
We have approached professional prosthetic companies for help, but we have not had any support to date. That is why we are asking for your help to make this dream come true. If you are able to donate anything to support this cause and make Claire’s dreams come true, we would be forever grateful. Even if you could just share this page it would help greatly.
In return for larger donations (over £500) Claire is happy to sing at any corporate events or weddings etc. As an experienced and professionally qualified audit manager I would also be willing to offer professional audit and risk consultancy free of charge for equally large donations.
Thank you for reading this. Anything you can do to help would be much appreciated by Claire and I.
