    Weʼve raised £2,100 to help fund a new power chair for Dan

    Worthing, United Kingdom
    Funded on Wednesday, 21st June 2017

    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Dan has outgrown his old power chair, it's getting worn out and the company that makes it has gone bust! He really needs a nice new chair that he can adjust fully and that will let him lie down for physio, but Wheelchair Services doesn't provide anything suitable. We've been quoted just over £24K for a Karma Evo Lectus and have applied to lots of charities for help with funding, but we need to raise some funds as well.

    We'd be really grateful for any help people can give us, and we don't just want to sit there and do nothing for it - Dan and I promise to do at least 40 hours of volunteering for local good causes between us as our way of putting something back. We'll let you know how we get on!

    Thanks,

    Penny & Dan.

      We have DONE IT! Thank you so much everyone for all your wonderful support and generosity. Also thank you to Variety Club, Lifeline 4 Kids, Boparan Trust, Worthing Lions, Children Today, Hassocks Help, Joseph Patrick Trust and Independence at Home - the wonderful charities who helped us get there. Dan and I haven't completed our 40 hours of voluntary work but we will keep our promise and make sure we do it all, over the summer. Thank you again - we are so relieved and grateful. Love from Penny and Dan. xxx

      What a great week! Lifeline 4 Kids can give us another £2,500, so the total raised (including crowdfunding) is £16,555.55! We now have £7,815.35 to go, so we are two thirds of the way there - brilliant. I've done 5 hours of volunteering so far - 3 hours at the Worthing 10K, an hour writing a blog for Independent Lives and an hour arranging a day out for the Duchenne Family Support Group. Next up is the Guild Care shop at Broadwater, where I'm hoping to clock up a few more hours. Thank you everyone for your support and good wishes so far!!

      Had a great time helping the Chestnut Tree House team hand out water to the runners at the Worthing 10K this morning, as part of my 40 hour volunteering pledge. I have never experienced so many people being so pleased to see me! Our total raised for Dan's chair so far is now £13,180.65, making us well and truly over half way - thank you so much to all the lovely people and charities who have supported us.
