Weʼve raised £0 to fund a new wheelchair and sadly they're stupidly expensive. Any donation would be gratefully received.

Hi! So my name is Charlotte. I'm 27 year old with my whole life ahead of me. I'm a wheelchair user after my whole life changed at the age of 22. I was a nurse at work when I tried to stop a patient falling and I messed up my spine. I now am medically retired, unable to work and live independently. I've lost myself and my dream to work as a nhs nurse.
So how can you help? Firstly, I hate to ask. I'm a thoroughly stubborn person but the NHS wheelchair services has failed me and won't allow me to get the wheelchair I need. I'm sure, as many of my friends know, the chair I have is clumpy, heavy and causes me to become socially isolated because I can't access certain means of transport, I've had issues with taxis, busses and sadly I don't drive. I'm trying to live a normal life but I'm unable to do so. I know there are causes bigger than mine but I wouldn't ask if it weren't desperate. My pride has been torn down and I'm sorry to ask but it's my last chance.
I'm grateful for every single penny and I want to say thanks if you can help In any way.
