Weʼre raising £1,500 to Help me do an intensive driving course so I can become able to transport my disabled mum around instead of my dad who is the only driver
- Winchester, UK
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 dad is the only driver in this family and with my mum's constant medical appointments, wanting to go out shopping or just wanting to get out the house, it puts a lot of pressure on him. He works 10-12 hour shifts and the shifts are really varied which makes this situation more difficult.
I am asking people to donate so I can take over transporting my mum around to places and appointments so he can stop worrying about work and trying to fit everything around what he does. It will also allow my mum to have a wider selection of appointment dates and times than what she has now with being fit in around my dad's shift work.
It would help our family out so much. Any amount would be appreciated.

About the fundraiser
I worry about my dad's mental health and stress put on his body and would really like to ease the burden he has on him. I feel helpless when he needs help and I am unable to do what is needed
