What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


For all our amazingly generous friends who have so VERY kindly donated towards Rolo's new hips and knees it's time to bring you up to speed with the incredible progress this wonderfully corageous beautiful boy has made to date.
Rolo had his first total hip repacement and corrective knee procedure on January 5th. This was by no means a straighforward operation - in fact the Orthopaedic Specialists said his was THE WORST CASE THEY HAD EVER SEEN.
Despite all of this (and a few initial hiccups) Rolo has come on in veritable leaps and bounds - so much so that at his last post-operative check it was felt that plans could be made to forge ahead with hip and knee no. 2 for which a date of March 21st has been agreed... much earlier than originally anticipated but vital if his 1st hip is to be as successful as is hoped.
For those unaware of costings to date the current bill is running at just over £6,500 which has to be paid by February 12th. To release these funds however, our original fund rasising page has had to be closed and this new one born so that we can continue to try and raise more funds - not only for the cost of the surgery but for the months ahead when Rolo will need extensive Hydro and Physiotherapies to regain full use of his new "bionic" back end.
We haven't the words to tell you all how truly grateful we are for all that has been acheived thus far. Thanks to your unending generosity this 4 year old stunning lad will have a new lease of life and, for that, we will be forever thankful.
Keep tuning in as we will let you know of progress in the weeks and months to come xxx

    A BORING BUT NECESSARY ADMIN BIT... !! To keep everything "above board" so to speak we have also appointed 3 independant trustees of all funds raised to date. This was done at the request of Alyson and Kev so that literally evey penny raised can be accounted for for the purposes of a document trail etc... However much you have kindly donated it's all here... you can take your pick as to which bit of our new and much improved boy you fancy... be it hip leg or otherwise!!

    And another shot to show the differing leg lengths. Bare in mind this is POST surgery... you can only imagine how much worse it was before we started this journey. Rolo says excuse his furry sock... but look how well his gorgeous choccy fur is growing back already!! :) xxx

    This is Rolo sitting down post surgery.... again we fell it demonstrates pefectly just how out of alignment he has been poor little chap. Once no 2 hip is bedded in this should all even itself out.
