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.


My mum, Julia, is 73 and a retired community midwife, she lives in a council bungalow in Rotherham. She suffers with COPD, has a pacemaker fitted and arthritis and has mobility issues and major problems with her breathing. She currently has a shower fitted over her bath which is totally impractical for her to use (she has fallen numerous times getting in or out of the bath) and has asked the council if they could fit a separate shower cubicle but the council refused this as they said the step up into the cubicle could be dangerous!! - they have offered to convert her bathroom into a wetroom but have told her she needs to pay £1548 up front to have the work done. She is also in need of a small mobility scooter to help her get out and about more as she struggles to even walk a very short distance without getting extremely short of breath. Unfortunately she has no savings so both the wetroom and the mobility scooter are currently out of reach for her, and they would improve the quality of her life so much. Any help towards these would be greatly appreciated to help give someone who has given so much to so many, and delivered 100's of babies into this world as well as offered help and support to those who have lost babies, a little bit of her life back. Thank you

    Well - some amazing news today! The council have reviewed my mum's case and have now decided that they will install a wet room for her at no cost! This is fantastic and will mean she will be able to get a shower easily and without fear of falling (the shower she currently has is over the bath so meant she was having to climb in and out which she really struggles with) So, I have reduced the target - our aim now is to get a mobility scooter to get her out and about a bit more Thank you to those who have helped so far - it is greatly appreciated
