    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.


    I am a type 1 diabetic. I am passionate to keep myself healthy and enjoy fitness. Recently my diabetes has made a turn for the worse and my sugar levels are unstable. I am slowly working on regaining control of this with the help of a Freestyle Libre blood sugar monitor. The machine allows me to constantly monitor my sugar levels on a hand held device without regular finger prick tests. Unfortunately, the machine is not currently funded by the NHS and costs £114 per month for disposables. I am more than happy to pay for anything which would improve my health, however, I am unable to afford the running cost of the machine -- this is why I am asking for your help. I am looking to raise money to enable me to continue using this amazing technology over the next year.
    Thank you for your generosity in advance.

    Any money raised that does not go towards my use of this machine I will donate to Diabetes UK
