    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.


    On 22nd June 2017 Pippa woke up and couldn't walk..

    A CT Scan revealed that a disc in her back had ruptured and caused her to become paralysed.

    She had back surgery but unfortunately this has not cured her and she remains paralysed. Her only way of getting out and about now is in her dog buggy or her wheelchair which she is trying to get used to.

    There is one slight positive and that is that she is trying to develop a spinal walk and therefore the hospital want us to try some Hydrotherapy and Laser therapy to try and encourage this, so that she may be able to get about without having to drag herself around. So we are going to give it a go to give her the best chance of walking again even if it isn't a proper walk.

    She is only 4 and it would be great if in the end if she could walk again, even if it is with a wobble. It would give her some independence in getting around the house or walk around the garden, or even go for a short walk before she needs to go back into her wheelchair or buggy.

    Our 2 boys and some of the kids at a party we were at decided to set up a youtube account and an instagram account for her as they wanted to see how she progresses and one of them did an ice bucket challenge.

    Someone then suggested 'Why don't you set up a just giving page for her', so here we are.
