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.

Hi Everyone,

On Friday 29th Nov. we had the Fund Raise Karaoke at THE LONG BOAT DUSTON.  It was a brilliant night and so well attended in support of the fund.
May we thank EVERYONE that came along and supported Megan's Fund and made it the night it was.
Special thanks go to Steve Ratledge for giving his offer and the time to do the karaoke to raise money.
Also a special thank you to Tony and Jan for letting us use THE LONG BOAT as the venue and for all their hard work selling raffle tickets and helping us get things arranged.
I think everyone had a wonderful time, it did seem so and great laughs had by lots of us.
The amount raised from raffle was £455 and we still have the collection boxes to count which are still on the bars for next couple of days.

Once again thank you too "Everyone" that came on the night and supported us all. We had a wonderful evening with old friends and many new ones.

With all our love and Flutterby Kisses.

Gill Anna & Natalie.
