    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.

    Story

    William is a very special 14 year old with a wicked sense of humour. He suffers from Cerebral Palsy and Epilepsy and requires 24 hour care. William has severe problems with his hips, pelvis and back and has a constant battle with pain. He has had over fifteen major operations and will require regular surgery throughout his life. William's seizures can come at any time although the majority come during sleep, which means he needs constant supervision throughout the day and night.
    William’s home needs substantial alterations to make it a safe and comfortable place for him to grow up and to enable his parents to continue his long term care. The Edkins need to raise funds to cover the cost of building a small extension to house proper bathroom/toilet facilities and a bedroom for him to grow in to. William does not have access to downstairs facilities and the bathroom is now not big enough for a wheelchair, a hoist and a care giver. His bedroom isn't big enough to accommodate his wheelchair and all the equipment he needs. This extension will also give the family extra space for live-in respite care as his care becomes more complex.
    Please help make Williams life as comfortable as possible for now and his long term future. Thank you.

      So, my crazy, mad, 60 (odd) year old mum Janet Orr has pledged that she will also go for the chop (grade 2) if I can raise £2000 before 3pm on the 10th of September! I do love a challenge! 😂 Please sponsor me and help make my mum bald and local family, the Edkins', lives a little easier.

    I've been growing my hair for two years after having devastatingly losing 1/3 of it due to a medication that didn't agree with me. In order to help this special boy, I pledge to shave it all off again in return for sponsorship.
