Story

Six months ago a friend of mine was diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome, which is a rare but serious autoimmune disorder in which the immune system attacks healthy nerve cells in the peripheral nervous system. which leads to weakness, numbness, and tingling and eventually paralysis.

After spending months in hospital he was able to come home. Sadly he is still paralysed, he has lost all ability to move his arms or legs and is now wheelchair bound and has to rely on expensive taxis to get from A to B.

I started to look into ways for him to regain his independence, to be able to get into the passenger seat of his car and to be able to travel to physio appointments, hospitals or to just be able to spend some time with his kids away from home, be it watching them swim or horse-riding -day to day things everyone of us takes for granted.

I came across the Milford Person Lift, a nifty bit of kit which uses an electrical hoist that is mounted within the car and easily hoists the person from the wheel chair into the passenger seat.

All money raised would go towards the purchase and installation of the lift which costs around 2200 pounds.

On Monday the 11th of June I will climb Ben Nevis barefoot, starting at a level of ~20m above sea level, ascending and then again descending 1324m which will mirror the amount of money I am aiming to raise with everyones help.

Update: Ben Nevis has been good, but we are aiming to raise the full amount and for this we will do another barefoot walk with either Snowdon or Scafell Pike as the next location.

Your donations will determine the location, so please add either location to your donation and the highest amount for either location will determine the next walk.

Please keep sharing and donating...

    And we have made it -100%- one last donation today that took us up to our target! Thank you to everyone who has donated and who went out of their way to make this possible. I am emotionally moved by this and it is so nice to see people coming together. I will post pictures very soon so you can all see what it has enabled us to buy. There will still be one further walk towards the end of August / beginning of September, any further money raised by this will go towards extra equipment needed in the future. Again -thank you to everyone!

    We just blazed past 50% -over half way! Thank you to everyone! Lets keep the momentum going and I am confident that we reach the required amount and hopefully go beyond this. It would help to recover some of the cost for taxis, spent over the last six months already, as well as give something towards further equipment that might be needed in the future. Every little helps and I know that this will make a huge difference. Thank you all again, you are amazing! Keep sharing this link...

    Thank you to everyone who has donated so far -you have all been amazing and we are at almost 40%. But we still have some way to go, the page will be up and running until the 7th of September. So for the remainder of the money I propose the following: We will do another barefoot walk which will be either Snowdon or Scafell pike and everyone who donates gets to choose. So please include either name in your donations and the highest amount of donations for either location will determine the next walk. Let’s do this and let’s make this happen!

An old friend of mine once said:” I have received so much from others, and although I am not able to give back to them directly anymore, I can give to others....” This stuck with me and I will always stand up for people that mean something to me.
