Weʼve raised £8,770 to Fund a Functional Electrical Stimulator
- Chirnside, Duns, UK
- Funded on Friday, 12th October 2018
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 11yr old niece Eilidh is a real “trouper” and never moans despite being born with a hemi-plegic cerebral palsy and then being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 5. This is thought to be unique in Scotland.
I plan to swim across the widest point of Loch Lomond (the highland boundary fault line for geographers). It’s 5 miles so I hope to complete in 3 hrs. Weather permitting this will be late July / early August.
I aim to raise the £2,500 that is needed to get her a “Functional Electrical Stimulation” system to help activate the muscles that lift her right foot. If, like me, you think this is a worthwhile cause then I’d really value your support. I’ve set up a just-giving page here;
and will make up any shortfall personally. Of course I’d be delighted to receive any donations directly so just contact me for details. Should there be a surplus then this will go to Juvenile Diabetic Research, who aim to improve the lives of young people living with Type 1 Diabetes.
Thank you very much, in anticipation.
