Weʼve raised £10 to help me fund for a mobility scooter to help me get around and not be house bound
- Liverpool, United Kingdom

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.
Earlier this year I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and since diagnosis my ability to get around has become very restricted to the point that I try not to leave the house as I know it will leave me in quite a bit of discomfort for the rest of the day , I have tried to claim for a mobility vehicle but as they deem that I can walk 50yards that I do not need help in getting around although I have to use a walking stick at all times, sadly we can not afford to purchase a car so my next option is a mobility scooter so I can go out a little, finances are quite tight following a family bereavement, back in September I lost my mum after a brave battle that started off with her being diagnosed with fibromyalgia.
Sadly I also suffer with depression and anxiety and the stress of not being able to do things is becoming to much.
We are hoping to raise as much as we can, anything will be a bonus in trying to raise funds to buy either a new or refurbished scooter.
I appreciate every donation and will keep everyone updated throughout the fundraising period, a target has been set and hopefully this will be met.
Thank you to everyone for taking the time to read my story and for donating.
