    Weʼve raised £240 to buy a wheelchair for people who need it (Wheelchair Foundation)

    Sudbury, UK
    Funded on Monday, 28th May 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.

    Story

    After a long conversation with my wife about what charities do, our 4 year old daughter Celeste decided that she wanted to raise money to buy a wheelchair for someone who needed one, but couldn't afford one. She's decided a do a run around our block of houses every day this week.

    She likes the look of the Wheelchair Foundation and she wants to raise £110 total ($150) - which is the cost of an entire wheelchair. We're already some of the way there thanks to our neighbours and friends!

    EDIT: Everyone's been so generous that we're currently heading towards THREE wheelchairs! Unbelievable!

    (the Wheelchair Foundation aren't listed on JustGiving, hence the crowdfunding type page)

      Ladies and gentlemen, I am extremely proud to say that all of Celeste's charity money has now been collected in and sent to the Wheelchair Foundation. All in all, Celeste raised £860 ($1,140), which is enough to buy almost 8 wheelchairs for people who desperately need them, but can't afford them. Thank you so much to everyone for your generosity - Celeste is so happy to have helped people in need.

      Day Seven - And we're done! A little drizzle on the last run, but she didn't let that stop her! Like Alan suggested, I'm going to get in contact with the local press and see if that'll raise a little more. Other than that, we're just collecting up the very last of the donations from nursery, etc. and I hope to post the total amount raised very soon. Thanks very much to everyone again for their amazing generosity - what a week!

      Day Six - Finally some good weather! With one more day of her sponsored week to go, Celeste set off with a big smile on her face (and no waterproof this time!). I think by the time she's done tomorrow, she'll be ready for a sit-down and - hopefully - a lie-in too!
