Weʼre raising £2,500 to buy a 2nd hand car for my wife who is an ex nurse to use as she has nerve damage and we have 2 children and she is losing her independence

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.
My wife was a nurse for many years looking after the elderly and during a long shift she damaged her back. She tried everything including surgery but nothing worked so she had to leave nursing. On top of this she now has nerve damage that is not repairable.
We have 2 children aged 8 & 2, my wife is very independent, we bought a 2nd hand automatic 7 seater as its higher and easier for her to use but its had about £1000 spent on repairs and it still keeps breaking down. I work every hour I can but we can't afford repairs or a replacement and she needs a vehicle to keep her independence as the condition gets worse and to also take the children out when I am away.
