£964raised of £1,500 target by 40 supporters

Weʼre raising £1,500 to Offer some financial stability to Amie and Shaun and enable them to be close to their dad Gary, whilst he remains critical


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.


I urgently need your help. As a family, friend, colleague, or even stranger. I launched this crowd funding page with the aim to empower my niece, Amie, and nephew, Shaun, to remain as close to their dad, Gary, for as long as possible.

Following a horrendous assault in the early hours of the 10th February, my brother in law remains in a critical condition in Manchester and both Amie and Shaun have been staying in hospital rooms and hotels. All of the hospital staff have been amazing, but inevitably they cannot accommodate them endlessly. Living a lengthy 4 hours’ drive away it is absolutely essential they are near Gary every day, to encourage their dad to wake up and equality it is important for them emotionally.

Currently they are renting an apartment in close vicinity to Salford Royal, where they can support each other, cook meals, rest and wash clothes. Hundreds of miles away from home, with no certainty of income this accommodation has to be funded for by themselves. We have purchased them clothes and essential items, however this furnished apartment is £1,000 a week.

As a family we have been staying in surrounding hotels or traveling back and forth from Somerset, this is funded by us personally and enables us to provide Amie and Shaun with the emotional support they need.

Amie’s appeal has reached far and wide and I am hoping this page will too. I have set the target to cover the cost of a weeks accommodation and £500 to donate to Headway, there are many additional costs that they are encountering, including another week accommodation so any further monies received will help them with their future difficulties. We have received so many offers of help and I would really like to appeal to you all for any donation - no matter how small, during this already emotional and stressful time.

I never thought that we would find ourselves in a position such as this, believe me this appeal hasn’t been made in haste – thank you in advance for your support
