- Funded on Saturday, 16th September 2017
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.
Cathy O'Malley, aged 51, has the rare genetic condition Friedreich's Ataxia. It has severely affected her mobility and her ability to travel. She has a wheelchair and a carer to assist. In order to travel it incurs extra expense as her carer needs to come too. It also requires adapted cars to transport her and an adapted bed and other equipment in order to ensure Cathy is comfortable and can get around out of her own home.
Cathy lives in the UK and has not been home to Achill for some 15 years. She is coming this September as she missed her Dad's Funeral last year and wants to attend the Yearly Mass. But we need to pay for the extra expense it costs to bring her so she can enjoy her first trip home in many years without having to worry about how to pay for it all.
If you can spare a little PLEASE give a bit to make a BIG difference to this long awaited trip and help 'Cathy Come Home'. Cathy is paying her own travel expenses....Thank You.
The Additional Costs are:
Wheel Chair Adapted Car Hire 410.00
Adapted Bed, Mattress and Hoist Hire 410.00
Electric Wheel Chair Hire 83.00
Additional Accommodation Cost 383.00
TOTAL COSTS 1286.00
