    Weʼve raised £490 to help raise money for Maisie 's Wheels

    Yorkshire, 3 peaks
    Funded on Tuesday, 2nd October 2018

    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 June 30th, I will attempt to complete the Yorkshire 3 Peaks challenge, together with some friends. The Yorkshire Three Peaks route is 24 miles (38.6km), and includes 1585m (5200ft) of ascent. We have been exercising in preparation (no mean feat in very flat Norfolk ;-)), but we are under no illusion: it’s going to be tough.

    However, it won't be as tough as the journey young Maisie, who used to do gymnastics with me, has been through. Maisie has undergone countless operations and treatments to remove a brain tumour. This has left her unable to walk, needing a ventilator to aid her breathing and a gastronomy button to help her eat.

    I am hoping to raise money towards a multi-functional wheelchair - Maisie's wheels. This would make an indescribable difference to Maisie’s quality of life. It would help her rehabilitation, allow her to access more areas with her family, and improve her daily care. It would get her closer to living the normal life of a 12 year old.

    Maisie currently has three pieces of equipment, a wheelchair, a static chair for inside the house and also a standing frame all of which are vital for her to have access to - the new wheelchair would replace all three!

    Thank you so much for your support. It means a lot to me and to Maisie and her family.
