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.


Hello my name is Lynne and I am asking for help to buy a power pack (motorised aid) for my sister Bevs wheelchair. The reason being I have watched my niece Donna since she was 14 (for 18 years) caring for her mum 24 hours a day. As time has gone on it is taking its toll on her health she now suffers with back problems and has developed carpal tunnel in her wrists. If things carry on this way my family and I are worried that she won't be able to carry on caring for her mum in the way she does now. The power pack will improve daily life significantly for Donna and Bev, as it will take away the physical pain for Donna whilst allowing Bev to still enjoy her life as best she can.

In the year 2000 my sister Bev had a brain tumour removed, after 12 hours in surgery she then suffered a brain haemorrhage which brought on a stroke and left her unable to walk and other health problems. Donna has looked after her tirelessly since then.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and if you feel you can help in any way it will be greatly appreciated.
