Weʼre raising £2,000 to Help make as many long lasting memories with our terminally ill son. To take him stateside, meet family, have plenty of happy times!

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.


Our son Matthew was developing as expected until approximately 15 months old when he started to regress to a point where he now needs support for all tasks that the majority of us take for granted. We have undergone years of medical investigations which eventually led us to the best at Great Ormond Street Hospital. Our worst fears were confirmed to us on the 3rd October 2018 where we learned Matthews fate of the horrendous terminal condition of infantile neuroaxonal dystrophy. The prognosis is between the ages of 5 to 10 years. So we need to make every day count to the best of our ability.

The generosity of friends and family have supported with vital equipment to date but as Matthews time with us narrows, memories are becoming more important to us than ever. Any support to help us achieve this will be gratefully appreciated.

      I'm so pleased to see you've already passed your target amount! Our money was raised by raffling a Lincoln Fun Bus Teddy Bear at our recent Halloween Event. Lesley and Alan x.

    Matthew was diagnosed with a childhood terminal condition known as infantile neuroaxonal dystrophy on the 3rd October 2018. We are utterly heartbroken as a family and we know the unthinkable will happen, but help us make some unbelievable memories!
