Weʼre raising £1,500 to Set up a small business for a disabled police officer, who wants to provide a gardening service for the elderly and disabled .
- Stoke-on-Trent, UK
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.
Two years ago my husbands life was turned upside down. after relentless specialist appointments, tests and a 3 month stay in hospital Nick was diagnosed with Functional Neurological Disorder ( which basically means his brain isn’t working properly.
his brain sends signals all over his body which give him severe pain.
FND is due to a problem with the functioning of the nervous system and thought to be the result of the brain’s inability to send and receive signals properly, rather than disease.
This meant as a front line police officer he could no longer do his job and was medically retired, he absolutely loved his job, it gave him a sense of purpose. The past few years have been tough, he has often suffered in silence.
After hearing a conversation about how a lady was in pain after doing some simple weeding in her garden Nick suggested he go and do it for her next time, free of charge. He loves gardening. He now wants to help as many people as possible, the disabled and elderly, but equipment, marketing, travel, stationary, the list goes on isn’t cheap and we can’t afford on our own to do it all.
Please help with what ever you can, Nick spent years as a police officer helping people and wants to continue to help others even today, even going through what he is going through.
He doesnt want to make profit, he simply wants to help people enjoy their garden.
Thank you for looking.
