£2,340raised of £2,000 target by 81 supporters

Weʼre raising £2,000 to help Sam 'Wheels' Harper-Miller get a state of the art power chair

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

Myself, Chris and Sam have known each other since the age of 11 and despite his condition Sam always has a smile on his face when you see him out and about in his chair. At a very young age Sam was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and for the vast majority of his 27 years he has been in a wheel chair.

Having spoken to him recently I learned that although we see this positive side of him, he is often in a lot of pain and discomfort.

When he posted his fundraising campaign to get a better chair I instantly wanted to see if I could help in getting him to his target, but also wanted to get him involved in an experience also.

I approached him with the idea and he instantly replied "YES!"

Sam spends up to 18 hours each day sat in the same chair and with this new one he will be so much more comfortable. It will also give him much more freedom to get around his house, travel further without the risk of battery failure and give him the ability to raise himself up so that he can communicate and socialise with people easier.

This event will be so much more than raising money.

Taking Sam to the top of a mountain will provide an unforgettable experience for him. Metaphorically he has conquered so many mountains already and with his new ambitious plans he will be conquering many more in the future!

    We are absolutely elated with the support that you have all shown! Thank you a thousand times over for all of your generosity. It has made the 6 hours of graft up the hill all the more worth while. The journey up and the feeling once we arrived at the top itself was priceless and one we will all remember forever.

    We have decided to double our target amount and this is because of the extra mountain we will be attempting to summit. Please spread the word to anyone who hasn't yet donated - every pound, every penny counts!

    Since launching this expedition we have had to make some changes to our plan. Most importantly the additional mountain to climb! As Ben Nevis was posing a planning nightmare we decided to delay it until next year, but so that we don't let our supporters down we decided to chuck another expedition in the interim. :D Our first proper training session went very well from a capability point of view - some thicker and padded straps will be a welcome addition to the sedan chair. Another training session this week in preparation for Snowdon 21/07

    In a world where we see bad news daily, your story and the love of your friends to carry you to the top of Snowdon showed true integrity, hope you manage to get your new chair, good luck!
