£15,684raised of £80,000 target by 461 supporters

    Weʼve raised £15,684 to pay for Amanda's immunotherapy

    Funded on Sunday, 19th August 2018

    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.



    It’s fair to say that when I set up this page ten weeks ago, none of us – Amanda, her family, me and my family really knew much about fundraising. Everyone involved in Amanda’s Appeal has come a long way since then. We now know that the most effective way to raise money is to work in conjunction with a charity. The money that is raised for Amanda’s Appeal will grow so much more quickly if we do this. Their charitable status makes it a lot easier for us to approach trusts, corporations and independent businesses for donations of money, and goods and services for raffle prizes. They can also legitimately help us to claim GiftAid on the individual donations they receive. So, over the next week we will be moving into the second phase of our fundraising campaign. We are going to work in conjunction with Just4Children, charity number 1164473 through a new JustGiving page. By doing this we can gain the significant benefits of charitable status and get to our target amount more quickly.

    I want to thank you sincerely for your most generous support so far. Your donations, kind messages and the time you have spent sharing this story and spreading our request for help have been overwhelming. We do hope you will continue to follow and support Amanda’s cause. You can do this by using the new JustGiving page

    or by checking out our progress on

    We want to reassure you that all the money that has been donated to Amanda during the first phase of our fundraising campaign using this page is safe. The money that has been donated will go towards her treatment. We have set up the Wordpress page so that everyone who has already given money during the first phase of our fundraising campaign can see what part their donations continue to play as we work towards our goal to raise the total of £100,000 now required.

      It really is amazing that after nearly three months, we are still getting donations coming in on a daily basis. However, we have recently undergone some changes in regard to our fundraising campaign, which means this page will soon be closed down and another has been opened in replacement. The story on this page has all the details, and we ask that if you are donating to please head over to the new page, which also allows gift aid, which is something we've only recently been able to do. Thank you all, but please head to our new page to donate.
