I had cancer of the womb and had radiotherapy and I now retired. I have severe Peripheral Neuropathy in my feet and bowel problems from the treatment and tablets. I cannot go out as I cannot walk outside because my toes are also hammered which means my toes are bent over and I walk on my nails, and I have excruciating pain in my feet. I have not been able to go out for months and would like to be able to do the things I miss so much my Art class , my Church, my Slimming World group, and to meet up with my friends in a cafe for a cup of tea and be able to go to see my daughter and grandchildren again. I also have a little chihuahua and need to take my dog with me as it supports me to go out because of the anxiety I have from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The money will be used to buy the scooter and for insurance and a rain cover and a bag and a raincoat while using it, and for the delivery of the scooter. Thank you.

About the fundraiser
I live on my own with just my little dog and a small bird. I only have State Pension and DLA which all pays for a car that a retired friend drives for me and they get me shopping and things I need, so I have nothing left for a scooter to help me to get around if I could go out.
