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.
Sheena spent her life dedicated to the care of others. As a nurse, she was passionate about enabling independence and the quality of care services.
Towards the end of her life there were a few occasions when having easy access to a Raizer would have 'been handy'. Thus, in her memory, we'd like to raise enough money to buy this emergency lifting chair for our community. The Raizer would be based at the Isle of Whithorn Church to benefit local people in the future - the nearest Raizer is currently at Newton Stewart Community Hospital, some 23 miles away.

On Sheena's behalf 'Thank you for your contribution' and for helping to celebrate her life in this way.
Isle Futures Ltd (Registration No: SC 226372 Registered Charity No: SC037758) have agreed to host a restricted fund to support this appeal.

Isle of Whithorn, Newton Stewart, UK
Sheena Rose Newberry spent her life dedicated to health and social care. It seems appropriate that we honour and celebrate her memory by raising money for a piece of equipment for her community. The Raizer will ensure that trained individuals can help the person who has fallen.
