£330raised of £500 target by 25 supporters

Weʼre raising £500 to help fund specialist equipment for Hettie

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.


Hettie suffers from a condition called Spinal Muscular Atrophy.

SMA is a life limiting condition which robs people of their ability to move, swallow, speak. Hettie is fortunate enough to be able to move her arms and speak non stop but she cannot use her legs so is reliant on mobility aids to move around and play with her friends.

This equipment isnt always funded by the NHS and comes at a huge cost. We are looking to raise upwards of £23k to fund a specialist powerchair, one which can lower to the floor, enable her to stand and most importantly integrate with all her mates. This chair will be a dream come true for Hettie.

Her godmother Menna and myself (her mum) are running the cardiff 10k on september 2nd to help raise funds towards this powerchair. Neither of us are born runners lol, but we are putting in every effort we can to run this for her.

Please help support Hettie to enable her to do everything a 4 year old should be able to do - thank you xx
