Weʼre raising £1,000 to help our colleague Liz Symes buy an “ICE TRIKE” to allow her independent access to the outdoors again following her spinal cord injury

Brighton, UK

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

In November 2017 Liz had an extraordinarily unlucky accident whilst swimming in a calm sea in Barcelona. She was caught by a current, dragged underwater and she cracked her head on the hard sand. She sustained a neck trauma that damaged her spinal cord resulting in paralysis of her limbs. She has spent the following months in hospital desperately working at regaining some movement and strength.

She is passionate about the outdoors, loves photography, exploring and dog walking. Since the accident, it has been very difficult for Liz to access the outdoors so we are trying to raise money to buy her an all-terrain ice trike so she can regain her independence.

Vivien, Sonia, Becky and Cathy will be cycling for the day on the 22nd September 2018 as a challenge!

Thank you for reading this. Your generosity will make a huge difference to Liz's life.

This is the ICE TRIKE -
