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.
Hi, I'm Jo
I am trying to raise funds to keep our little car (we named her Bub) on the road because without it I am virtually housebound.
It's tough to ask for help, especially financial, but after an incredibly stressful few months here we are.
I've lost my disability support due to the disgustingly flawed system that is the DWP, and whilst I am fighting that through legal channels, it will take 2 years for my case to be heard.
Which brings me here, asking you to consider donating towards keeping my lifeline.
I have severe depression and anxiety, triggered by a traumatic event beyond my control, which makes the simplest of tasks an ordeal. The biggest issue by far for me is isolation as going out, even to get the weekly shop, is a stressful experience. Bub allows me to decide when I want to go out, where and most importantly gives me freedom whilst feeling safe. It means the world to me to be able to go for a drive at night when I can't sleep due to flashbacks or get some fresh air at a local park without the terrifying prospect of using public transport. Having bub means I can get to the cardiologist or therapy, access community services, see my advocate and many other vital appointments.
Please help me to maintain my independence, please donate whatever you can to keep bub on the road
