Weʼve raised £4,500 to help provide Ronnie with a bespoke sports wheelchair.
- Funded on Friday, 5th October 2018
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.
During a family trip to Flamingo Land in 2017 Ronnie suffered a heart attack resulting in his Dad Stevie performing CPR with using the on site defibrillator until paramedics arrived. Ronnie was then airlifted to Leeds hospital.
Due to his families quick thinking and the support of the consultants, doctors and nurses Ronnie made an inspirational recovery in time.
Ronnie was discharged from hospital on November 2017 after being fitted with an internal defibrillator which will help him in the event of a further incident.
Ronnie has since enjoyed returning home and spending time with his friends. He has also returned to his studies at school. Allowing him to a normal way of life.
Ronnie currently relies on crutches and at this stage it is not clear if he will be able to walk unassisted again. However Ronnie has made fantastic progress with his physiotherapy.
Ronnie has continued to inspire his friends and family as he embraces life in his wheelchair and competes with St Mirren Warriors Wheelchair Basketball Team. He has recently been selected to for the Glasgow Warriors Wheelchair Basketball Team. He is due to represent Scotland under 15's at the National Junior Championships and the under 19's Invitational Challenge in August 2018.
We would appreciate your support in helping Ronnie fund his bespoke sport wheelchair and associated costs while he undertakes this remarkable challenge.
