Weʼre raising £8,000 to Help Harvey buy a Power Chair

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.


Harvey has Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy. This means that over time his muscles get progressively weaker. Although he can still walk, over the past year it has become increasing difficult for him to move around independently and he has to rely more and more on the use of his wheelchair. Whilst Harvey always remains positive and gives everything his best efforts, he currently uses a manual wheelchair which can be quite limiting at times. Especially when negotiating Falmouth’s many inclines! Harvey is also of an age where he would like to be out with his friends and not have to worry about someone pushing him. We are trying to raise funds to buy Harvey a power wheelchair which will enable him to be more independent and be able to keep up with his friends. We have sourced a fantastic power chair which is not only suitable for his needs but also looks incredibly 'cool', which is quite important when you are 13!

If you are able to make a donation it would be fantastic!
