    Weʼve raised £1,050 to Buy a used electric wheelchair for my son Shane

    Huddersfield, United Kingdom
    Funded on Thursday, 20th August 2015

    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.


    I am raising money to buy a new/used electric wheelchair for my son Shane Hobson, who has Muscular Dystrophy. The electric chair he has at the moment is no longer suitable, as it does not give him enough support. We are unable to get funding for a specialist chair and the Government chairs no longer meet his needs.

        More money from selling lots of things on eBay. I don't think I have anything left in my cupboard. Also once again thanks to Vicky for donating lots of beautiful clothes to sell.
