    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.

    Story

    My name is Kelly and I'm a 38-year-old from South Wales, UK. I have complex health issues which, amongst other things, include; Marfan Syndrome, fibromyalgia, and untreatable PCOS. The combination of these conditions means that I am in constant pain and struggle to do everyday things that most people take for granted. I can't walk more than 30m, and as you can imagine, this puts huge limitations on my life. My social life has become non-existent and I am reliant on other people to do a lot for me. I hate this and would love to gain some independence back.

    Although I am disabled, unfortunately, the NHS are extremely strict in my area, which means that I do not qualify for a power wheelchair or scooter. I do have a manual wheelchair, but as I am unable to self-propel I have to rely on other people to push me, which isn't always possible or practical.

    In order to get a portion of my life back, I need a power chair, but the cost is so high that I am unable to fund it myself. This is where I must swallow my pride and ask for help. There are specific things I require from my chair (such as a high-backed seat with enough lumbar support for my tall frame, a good amount of leg room etc) that aren't available on the cheaper options.The kind of appliance that I require can cost anywhere up to £5000, and I am saving as much as I can to put towards it myself, but I fall short - very, very short.

    If I am lucky enough to reach my target the money will be used to buy the perfect appliance and accessories so that I can get out again, take my dog for walks, do my own shopping and maybe even get something of a social life back.

    If you have a spare pound or two and would like to help me gain some much-needed independence, I would be forever grateful. If you don't have the money, and I understand that times are hard, please could you share this campaign?

    Thank you so much for your time, it's much appreciated.

    Kelly ♥

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?
