    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.

    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!

    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.
