Murray Walker is crowdfunding

raised of £20,000 target by 409 supporters

Weʼre raising £20,000 to purchase vital equipment for Maxine Amis who is paralysed from the neck down following a cycling accident in July 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 nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Maxine's Story

As many of you are already aware, Maxine Amis was involved in a devastating cycling accident in July 2018. She suffered a C2 spinal cord injury which has left her paralysed from the neck down. The severity of the injury has affected her respiratory muscles and her ability to breathe independently so she has to rely on a ventilator.

Everyone is doing their best to cope but it’s a daily struggle. Maxine’s family and friends are a great source of comfort to her but the challenges for all involved are enormous and life-long. Despite the terrible thing that has happened to her, Maxine is still a determined and inspiring woman.

We are all determined to improve Maxine’s life in any way we can. If she is to be able to leave residential care and have any sort of independence she will need 24/7 support and specially adapted equipment.

As the van involved in the accident was legally parked, there is no compensation. All monies raised will be used to provide essential equipment and additional extras to allow Maxine a better quality of life when she returns home.

Maxine has astounded everyone with the recovery she has made so far. The bravery and mental strength she has shown throughout has been unbelievable. Any donation to this cause will be gratefully received, as will support of future fundraising events. We want to help her afford equipment that will enhance her life, so please share this page and help us build a better future for our dear Maxine.

Thank you from the Amis/Walker family and friends.

    To all my lovely family and friends I want you to know I am coming home soon! Thank you so much for all your support which has certainly kept me going this past year. I don’t know what I would have done without you all. I know you'll understand that I am going to need time to adjust when I get home. I need to spend time with my family who I have been away from for almost a year now. It’s so important that I do this but I want you to know as soon as I am ready, I’ll be in touch with all of you. Lots of love Maxine xxx

    We would like to thank every single one of you for donating to this page. The response has been absolutely incredible. We have decided to keep this page running for the purpose of people who are not on social media. However, Maxine's friends have decided they wish to keep the fundraising going on a continuous basis therefore 'The Maxine Amis Foundation' account has been set up for this purpose. Should you require further details, please do not hesitate to contact me. Maxine is overwhelmed with everybody's kindness and cannot thank you enough.

    A huge thank you to everyone who has donated, shared and left such lovely messages. Since the target was set, we have gained a better understanding of Maxine’s needs. As you are aware, Maxine is unable to move or feel below her neck and will need a chair designed especially for people in her situation. The technology is amazing but not cheap - between £16,000 and £18,000. So we need to raise the target to £20,000. The additional money will go towards an extensive array of equipment which would give Maxine a better quality of life.
