£260raised of £350 target by 14 supporters

Weʼre raising £350 to Help fund a new Steady for the Chapel Allerton Hospital (Ward C1) to help patient rehabilitation.

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.


Chapel Allerton hospital in Leeds deals with rehabilitating patients that are recovering from accidents and strokes among other things. there are some amazing people here, both patents and staff.

Why do I care?
My mother had a terrible fall in April this year, breaking her leg in multiple places. It was touch and go whether they would be able to save her leg. The medical staff at the Leeds General Infirmary were amazing, and managed to save her leg, however since she suffers with MS it was a long road to recovery, and she was moved to Chapel Allerton Hospital.

Why a new Steady?
While there are many, many wonderful causes that we could help we have tried to target something that will help the greatest number of people where my mother is currently staying. She has been in Chapel Allerton now for a couple of months and the department has only one Steady, this means that only one patient at a time can be assisted to the toilet, this causes great discomfort and embarrassment to patients.
As a thank you to the staff at the ward I asked what would they like / need to make their jobs easier and better for the patients. A steady was the most realistic item that they could think of.

What is a Steady?
The standing aid concept is used in healthcare facilities, because it:
1.offers a dignified alternative to a wheelchair for the more mobile patients
2.enables good, eye contact between the patient and caregiver
3.provides transportation to the toilet and washbasin, and other everyday activities
4.helps to minimise manual handling by caregivers

Enhanced features include a pivoting divided seat and pedal-operated chassis legs, for greater resident / patient comfort and support, and to improve working routines for caregivers.

What am I going to do to help raise money?
My family have signed up to do Total Warrior in Leeds to try to raise money for a good cause. this is a 12km assault course... I am dreading it...
