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.


The summer holidays are hard for parents. The daily struggle to keep the kids entertained. For many parents of special needs children its almost impossible to cope. Having children that need even more stimulation yet many places or activities are unsuitable. For 26 years Mencap in Bedfordshire have provided a holiday club for up to three weeks. a club run by volunteers, paid for by parents and council grants. They take children swimming, to the park, do craft, music etc. Unfortunately this years funding has fallen short and they desperately need some support.

They are my lifeline. In a whole year it is the only respite I get from Fred. For me and Elsie it means we can go anywhere we like, restriction free. She gets to be number one and not worry about having to leave suddenly wheb freddie cant cope. We can shop, buy food, run errands, clean and still have time for cuddles. She needs this time as much as Fred.

Ive set this up in the hope that some of my friends will help support something that means so much to me and so many families locally. Ive put a target of 257 purely because I have 257 facebook friends ( I know im shocked too). If we all gave £1 thats all it would take x
