Story

Richard was involved in a motor bike accident (12 weeks ago). He has a spinal cord injury with the prognosis of permanent damage to his lower limbs.
He spent 7 weeks in Nottingham hospital, and now he currently is in Sheffield where he is undergoing intense rehabilitation. In those 12 weeks I have spent my time living with him at the hospital, this has been to ensure I can support him and his treatment plan, whilst understanding what his injuries will mean for us in the future. This has meant us making some life changing decisions with regards to our home and everyday life. At this most challenging time, we are also expecting our first child together in September.

To assist Richard in walking again and help improve his quality of life we want to invest in some technology. As we do not have all of the funds (have raised £20,000 so far) for this I want to help him by crowdfunding. Let's all help get Richard this technology!

Richard is a great husband, and I really want him to be able to have the freedom he deserves to ensure he can play an active part in our first child's upbringing.

The donations will go directly to Richard, and he will be able to use this to invest in technology, if we can all reach the target. We want to be able to buy a indego personal device. In essence this is a powered lower limb orthosis. It has a powered hip and knee joint in conjunction with sensor technology. It helps people to stand up and walk. To find out more on this technology visit the website at www.indego.com

Thank you for your support, this means a lot to us both.

    Just a quick update 😀 I’ve reduced the total required as some people have made personal donations direct rather than through the page 👍. Thanks to everybody who has donated. Richards fishing mates held an incredible event over the weekend raising over £1800 . The fishing match was organised by Mark Harvey and Ben Newton who honestly were fantastic. A huge thanks also to all that donated prizes and bought raffle tickets for the event too.To many people to thank but you honestly don’t know how much this has meant to Richard,Cheers lads 👍
