£3,135raised of £3,500 target by 124 supporters

Cambridge, United Kingdom

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.


Katie was born with Cystic Fibrosis, a genetic condition affecting the lungs, digestive system and other organs.
Katie attended the Adult Cystic Fibrosis Centre at Papworth Hospital from the age of 16. Papworth have an amazing team of specialist consultants, specialist nurses, ward nursing team, physiotherapists, dieticians, pharmacists and others. Katie was cared for in the inpatient CF ward several times during periods of being unwell. The ensuite rooms with air conditioning, TV, Wii Fit and treat trolley made these times easier for Katie and us as a family.
Recently Katie’s health had been deteriorating and she was being considered for a lung transplant. This was something Katie felt hugely positive about and excited that it would give her the chance to have a more normal life in the future. Katie always said she had a lot to live for - a loving husband and family.
Katie caught a virus that her body could not fight and she passed away on Thursday 16th November 2017 surrounded by her close family.
We will miss her so much - her love, her infectious giggle, her one liners, her fantastic impressions, her voice and her smile.
We as a family have decided to set up this crowdfunding page to allow us to raise donations in Katie's memory. Papworth Hospital are relocating to the Addenbrookes site in 2018 where a new Cystic Fibrosis Centre will be set up. We intend to keep this page open for a year and then donate the money raised to support the new unit and the patients and families with CF.

    A very close family friend Julie Readman is doing a tandem skydive on the 17th August 2018 to raise more donations for our fund in memory of Katie. Jules will free fall 2 miles, steer and land her parachute within 6 minutes whilst taking in the unique views of the Suffolk countryside - smiling throughout of course! Looking forward to seeing some pictures. Please donate what you can, every little helps. Thank you Jules XXXX
