    Weʼve raised £1,564 to help towards specialist equipment for my disabled niece

    Funded on Saturday, 27th May 2017

    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    On the 12th May, myself, some colleagues and friends are cycling to Paris and we are trying to achieve this within 24 hours!

    I'm doing this in aid of my niece Amber (9 years old) who has a very rare chromosome disorder called Phelan McDermid syndrome.

    Having this syndrome means she has no speech and severely low muscle tone which results in her being unable to stand, walk or crawl, she needs help with every part of daily living. Amber has no independence and will need 24 hour care for the rest of her life.

    Despite all of her troubles she is a happy and determined little girl, in the last few months Amber has amazed her family, with the help of a special walker which keeps her upright she has been able to take a few steps.

    With the help from fundraising this will enable her family to pay for specialist physiotherapy and equipment to help them reach their ultimate goal....their special little girl being able to walk independently.

    Please give to a worthy cause which is very close to my heart.

      We did it!!!! This has certainly been a journey.... after not ever being on a road bike, I decided to take up this challenge at the start of the year. The new bike was delivered in Feb and with 3 months of training behind me, I set off at 4pm from Trafalgar Square to attempt a challenge that I seemed like a very big ask.... The ride was amazing - an experience I will never forget and all in aid of a gorgeous little girl who will truly benefit from all of your extremely kind donations. So a huge thank you to everyone!!!!!

      So tomorrow is the day. I can't say that I'm not nervous about trying to complete this but hopefully the months of training leading up to this will pay off. Can I say a huge thanks for the over whelming support from everyone and this will help me get to the finish line at the arc de triumphed on Saturday.
