    Weʼve raised £6,040 to Help fund a wheelchair adapted vehicle for Mia

    Funded on Friday, 10th August 2018

    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.


    Please like my page on Facebook to receive regular updates of my journey and for tresured restaurant recipes I will be sharing!

    As some of you may know, my grandaughter Mia was diagnosed with Retts Syndrome several years ago, a devestating and rare genetic neurological and developmental disorder that affects the way the brain develops, causing a progressive inability to use muscles for eye and body movements and speech. Mia is now 8, and whilst she is a beautiful and smiley little girl, she is unable to walk, communicate or do anything independently. My daughter has been saving up for a wheelchair adapted vehicle as it’s becoming increasingly difficult to transfer Mia in and out of the car.

    Therefore I have decided to embark on a month long walking pilgramage in order to raise money for Mia which will go towards purchasing an adapted vehicle for her to travel around in. This really would mean a lot to my daughter and granddaughter, and make life just that bit easier.

    The Camino de Santiago is a large network ofancient pilgrim routes stretching across Europe and coming together at the tomb of St. James (Santiago in Spanish) in Santiago de Compostela in north-west Spain. I will be setting off on April 29th for a month. Travelling by foot almost 500 miles from Biarritz in France, to Santiago in Spain.

    It would mean a great deal if you could sponsor my walk and along the way, I will post regular updates of my journey!
