    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.


    My name is David Jeapes. I am 62 year old Granddad to Violet.

    I will be completing a 1 Million step sponsored walk, from my house in SW France, to Violet’s house in the East Sussex UK. 

    Not only raise money, but to also raise awareness of the immense daily-struggles that parents of disabled children have each and everyday.

    I believe that to enjoy life, we need it to be simple, sadly life is far from simple for Violet  and her family.

    For them, life is a constant battle. A battle for medical support, physical support, money, space to live and the time to enjoy being a family.

    I’m sure we all believe, in this enlightened age, that we all have a duty to ensure that not one person misses out on the equal opportunities to learn and to experience the joy life  can bring.

    Sadly, families of special needs children, are often let down by the Government, the NHS and local authorities. 

    We recognise that raising a disabled child is more costly due to their complex needs and how it can strain the family budget to breaking point.

    Sometimes, as in Violet’s case, 1 parent sacrifices their carer for the sake of their child and chooses to give up work to become the child’s

    full-time carer, thus reducing the family’s income dramatically.

    The money I raise will be used to ease some of their financial struggles.

    Donations for Violet will be used for equipment, therapies, family outings, hospital visits, including overnight stays.  Some adaptations to the family home and sensory games and toys for Violet as she grows and her needs change.

    We will be sharing the donations between Violet and two nominated charities; one in France and the other in the UK.

    Both do amazing work and share our values.

    Charity For KIDS & APEEIMC will receive 10% of our total raised funds as of the 31st October 2019. 

    Please support Violet...

    Thank you from me and thank you from Violet aged 4 x

        My lovely grandson Larkin goes to nursery, and soon to school with Violet. She is such a fighter as are all her family. Well done David for your long walk.
