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.


UPDATE: We are about to go and visit Lesley to tell her the good news, words cannot describe how thankful and grateful we are to each and every one of you. We didn’t think we would achieve £25,000 and it would have taken us forever to reach it without your help. YOU SMASHED IT! It restores our faith in human kindness how we can all pull together at times like this!

We are going to up our goal as anything extra on top of the £25,000 will mean that we can make further improvements to the house and Lesley’s quality of life and rehabilitation.

Thank you all so much again, we are all speechless. As members of the ambulance service we know how frail and precious life is. For Lesley to wake up to this will make her realise she is not alone and she has an entire army behind her. Xxx

ORIGINAL POST: Meet Lesley. Lesley has worked for both South East Coast Ambulance Service and London Ambulance Service for 15 years. Last June following a night shift she suffered a devastating stroke which has meant sadly she can no longer fulfil her duties as a frontline paramedic.

She is now living with her parents who provide all of her personal care but the house isn't suitable for her needs. We want to raise enough money to fund a wheelchair lift and ramp on the driveway, adapt the porch for wheelchair access and create a downstairs wet room.

Lesley has dedicated her working life to saving and helping others, she is and will always be a valued member of our ambulance family and we want to do all we can to give just a little back to someone who has given so much.
