Let's get the nation eating (and reading):
I was diagnosed with spinocerebellar ataxia in 2015 (no, I'd never heard of it either). Ataxia is a very rare neurological condition, which I was told would eventually put me in a wheelchair (it now has).
When I was first diagnosed, I could still walk OK-ish - with the increasing reliance on a walking stick. So walk I did (wearing a kilt to attract publicity - and even more donations). Eventually raising £1,100 for Ataxia UK.
However, and as predicted, the wheelchair became a reality last year. I didn't want this to mean an end to my fundraising activities though, so planned to take part in 3 Kitwalk events this year. Being pushed.
But after just one event, it was pretty evident that even this was now not possible either (it took me almost 3 weeks to recover - and I was being pushed?!).
So, the Ataxia Book Fairy allows me to continue my fundraising activities - without actually going anywhere.
To thank donors who donate £10 or more, I will send 10 labels (5 front + 5 rear), enough to leave 5 of your own books for someone else to enjoy before passing the book on too.
Thank you for your support.
