    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.


    Our one of a kind friend, devoted father of five and loving husband Nick has been diagnosed with an aggressive form of Motor Neurone Disease.

    We are urgently raising funds to pay for stem cell treatment which, while not a cure, will give Nick precious time to spend with his loved ones.

    A hospital has been found to deliver the treatment and it's vital we raise this money within the next few weeks so that Nick can get this treatment as quickly as possible.


    8th July 2017: Since Nick's diagnosis his amazing wife Heather has been working night and day to research the best options for Nick's treatment. We're all so excited to announce that world renowned specialist Dr Georg S. Kobinia will be treating Nick in Austria next week. The family will leave for the first round of treatment, which should take a week, this coming Monday. Go team Nick!!!

    We still need to keep up the fundraising efforts- a second round of treatment will be needed in August.

    Two pounds buys so little these days, but collectively we can buy Nick much needed time with his loved ones.
