Story

My Dad is probably one of my favourite people in the world. Growing up he was the strongest person I knew, as well as one of my biggest fans (hence why I'm still a Daddy's girl!) As I've gotten older he's gotten progressively sicker, particularly between my late teenage years to the present day.

Currently his conditions include:

- Hemiplegic Migraines
- A Fused Spine
- Widespread Arthritis
- Type 2 Diabetes
- Asthma
- Rheumatism

While I can't do anything about the sheer number of tablets he has take everyday to cope (17 to be precise!), it hurts to see him be stuck inside of the house because of his conditions. He's been medically unable to work for over 2 years now and due to limit government help can't afford to get the mobility aids he needs to be able to get outside in some way other than for medical appointments. He's gone from taking his daughter out on drives to being confined in his own home.

I'd like to raise £1600 on his behalf to acquire 2 things:

1) A mobility scooter so we can go outside more without him tiring out so quickly
2) A shed to store the mobility scooter in

If you're able to help me achieve this dream for him it would be greatly appreciated, as I simply won't be able to do it on my own!

Thank you.

    I'll never be able to repay what Jesus did for me and for mankind, but what I can do is obey his laws which had made me a better person, and love my fellowman even as my blood brother or sister.
