    Weʼve raised £150 to fund a new lightweight wheelchair to make a huge difference to the quality of life for a gentleman with spina biffida

    Funded on Monday, 26th June 2017

    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Jim is a neighbour of mine. He is wheelchair bound and suffers from spina bifida.

    His wheelchair is old and heavy. It is very difficult for him to manoeuvre.

    He is always cheerful and everyone goes to him for advice and friendship.

    I have never heard him complain although he is in constant pain.

    He recently went wiith a friend to a disability show. He tried out a lightweight wheelchair and came home telling everyone how amaxingly light and easy to manoeuvre it was.

    He said it was the wheelchair of his dreams.
    He assumes it will remain just a dream and the possibility that he could have such a wheelchair has not even occurred to him.

    I would like to make this dream a reality for this gentle, unassuming man. He has no idea that I am trying to do this.

    The wheelchair costs £7000.

    Please help if you can.

      Thank you so much for donations so far. A slower start than I was hoping for. I would be very grateful if people would share this page even if they are not able to donate. Still hopeful that we can do this. Tracey
