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.


I'm currently looking for a new, more advanced powered wheelchair than the one I'm currently using. As I'm now in my twenties I need something that's more reliable and that can offer me greater comfort and support as my physical condition, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, progresses. As I rely on a wheelchair all the time, not just for my health but for my independence as well, it's important to have the most suitable one for my needs. The chairs I am trying out also can incorporate Bluetooth meaning I would be able to use the wheelchair to control my devices. Something that will be massively useful when I'm eventually unable to control things like phones / tablets with my hands. It goes without saying that these types of wheelchairs aren't cheap though. The one I'm planning on getting could be between £10,000 and £20,000. So any donations people would be willing to give would be much appreciated and go a long way to help fund the wheelchair. Anyone who makes a donation to this campaign that is £50 or above will receive a complementary drawing of themselves, courtesy of my brother Jack who is a fine art graduate.
