£385raised of £22,000 target by 13 supporters

Weʼre raising £22,000 to buy a new wheelchair for Philippa. Philippa is dependent on her electric wheelchair to gain as much independence as possible.

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.


Philippa is 17 years old and is off to university next September.

She has been an electruc wheelchair user all her life for cerebral palsy, after being 11 weeks premature. She is a very intelligent, ambitious young woman who hangs out with friends, plays wheelchair football and would happily jump off a mountain with a parachute on her back. She is volunteering at Parkrun to go towards her Gold Duke of Edinburgh, which is where she met Craig who is kindly running to raise money towards her new chair.

This chair enables her to go places throughout the day independently. She changes her seating position, can stand and lie down with the simple joystick.....fantastic.

Thank you for your help.
