£530raised of £400 target by 25 supporters

Weʼre raising £400 to purchase an upright mobility harness for Helena.

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.


In 2015 Helena was diagnosed with type 1 spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), a degenerative motor neurone disease. (

This year, on the 18th of August, Helena's family will undertake the '50 Mile March'.

Starting at Kent Police Headquarters, the fundraising march will follow the coastal trail, to Margate Police Station with aim to raising funds for an upright mobility harness.

This equipment would provide a huge step forward in making the world as accessible as possible for Helena!
