    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.


    On Friday 4th November 2016 our world was turned upside down. Lewis (our grandson, just turned 7years) was diagnosed with a Medullosblastoma brain tumour, the scan also revealed smaller tumours in his spine and elsewhere in his brain.

    We are raising funds for Lewis to look forward to a special holiday once the invasive treatment of high dose chemotherapy and radiotherapy is completed and he is feeling well enough to travel.

    Many thanks

      Lewis is now in isolation following his first invasive bout of chemotherapy - his bloods have dropped so extreme care must be taken until the levels are back up. We really hope Lewis will be able to come home for a few days over Christmas, he will then have the next course of treatment - Radiotherapy. Lewis has a long road ahead of him..... We can't thank you enough to everyone who has gifted to Lewis, and the support for us all. Linda (Nanna)
