Weʼre raising £10,000 to help fund a prosthetic leg for Paul Fenney

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.
Recently a great friend of mine was involved in a tragic accident while cycling home from work so that he could pick his son up from nursery on time. Thankfully he survived the experience, however it resulted in him needing his right leg below the knee to be removed.
Paul is a keen athlete and an active father. As well as kicking a ball around with his son he was regularly involved in obstacle races and long distance running. He had a few big events planned over the next few months which he is no longer able to take part in. With the way technology has improved over the years it should be possible to assist Paul in getting back to his normal lifestyle without being affected by the loss of his leg.
Unfortunately the type of leg required to allow Paul to live this lifestyle is not cheap and is not something we are able buy without some help. I am hoping that we are able to raise the funds required so that Paul can get back to his normal way of living.
Any help towards this goal would be fantastic
