raised of £800 target by 14 supporters

    Weʼve raised £400 to Get an electric wheelchair as the NHS are reluctant to help.

    Leeds, United Kingdom
    Funded on Monday, 10th October 2016

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    I need help raising money to give me the independence I crave. I was born with cerebral palsy known as cp to sufferers which greatly affects my mobility. I use a wheelchair pretty much all the time that my husband has to push me around in. We want to be able to travel to places by bus / train and this is impractical now because my manual wheelchair is old, uncomfortable and very unstable. We have looked in to hiring but at £90 a week we cannot do this. The NHS say that as I'm over 25 and can walk using crutches I do not meet their criteria for assessment for an electric Wheelchair. Me and my husband would like to be able to do things other couples take for granted such as walk next to each other and talk as we go places. We'd love to go on holiday and lots of other things that having this chair would enable us to do.
    If you can find it in your heart to help any contributions would be greatly appreciated.

      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.

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?
