WELCOME " MEGAN'S FLUTTERBY FUND" SITE has been set up in memory of Megan Bell who died aged 13 years of a life limiting condition. Megan was profoundly disabled and during her lifetime we had to fund raise to obtain lots of specialized equipment and other things such as switches to activate toys and computer. The purchase of musical instruments ,which the children find so exciting and stimulating. Bean bags, mats, lights, mirrors the list is endless. A lot of this equipment to enrich her life was not supplied by the Health Service as they do not fund for lots of these things. We too had help from our local community, friends and wonderful people who helped us do this .

We now have set out to help other families with children like Megan in her memory to have these things through her Fund. Our aim is to raise funds to help special needs and life limited condition children in our local community to be able to have as many of these things that we are able to help towards or purchase for.
Being specialized equipment can cost from as little as £30 for a switch to hundreds of pounds depending on the childs ability, but can make such a difference to the childs everyday quality of life and the joy and achievement it can bring by being independent for those short moments . Fibre Optic lights and musical instruments such as a ocean drum again bring such enjoyment but cost around a £1000 for lights and £80+ for the drum.

Yesterday the NCS Pink Team held a Community Fun Day for children at Towcester Road Methodist Church Rooms.
It was really super event put on by these exceptional young people who had taken the time to plan ,organise and put into action, for any child in the local community that wanted to attend and join in the fun. Their were lots of for the children to do including, bracelet/necklace making, cake decorating , messy painting corner where the children could paint and decorate the butterfly cut outs. Face Painting was very popular as was nail painting and transfer tattoos. tea and coffee was served with a mass of homemade cakes made by the students and their families. The event was put on by these young people all free, they gave up their time to do this and also any donations for Megan's Flutterby Fund.
Outside was a very popular drumming area where the children could join in and sit and drum and have fun.
I would like to say a huge Thank you to all the Pink team and Rumbi (their team leader) for their time and all the effort and enthusiasm they put into to the event. It was wonderful and very heart warming that a group of young people could come together to provide a few lovely hours in such community spirit.
Many thanks to you all Gisela , Anna & Natalie
