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.

                  LOOKING BACK ON 2013.

Hi Everyone,

Time to look back on the Highlights of Megan's Flutterby Fund  in  2013.
We continued to be The Mayor's charity until April and had a last few lovely months fund raising  with Jenny and Roger.

JANUARY we attended the mayor's Ball.

FEBRUARY was a busy month.
Dang's  Restaurant, Craft Fayre, Bucket Collection at the Cobblers Ground, and an Evening Cheque handover from  Duston Sugar & Spice ladies.

APRIL was another busy month and a very special one for us as a family as Our Little Grand daughter Rayan was born on the 15th.
Fashion Show at the Guildhall by Northampton Zimmwomen  Association and Rockingham Speed Way Dream Rides by Sporting Bears.

MAY Mayor's Family fun day at Abington Park our last event with Jenny and Roger to end our year with them on a high. It was a supper sunny day and we had a wonderful time. Craft Fayre

JULY Craft Fayre  and then it was a short break for holiday time.

SEPTEMBER  Fun Day with the NCS Pink Team which was such fun.  Later that month was Pink Team Graduation day we were so happy to be their with them on their special day.

NOVEMBER  Karaoke at The Long Boat Duston ...just an amazing evening and Christmas Craft Fayre.

DECEMBER Carol Singing at Sainsbury's and our last Craft Fayre of the year.

It has been an amazing year meeting so many wonderful people and meeting up with Old friends and gaining so many New ones.
We would like to thank everyone that has supported Megan's Fund through the year and to all that have given their time to help and to the wonderful people of Northampton that have so generously donated to the Fund. With out you we could not do what we do.
During this year we have fulfilled eight requests and already have one for this year going through.
We already are in the swings of plans for events this year and will be doing more publicity to let Families know we are here.

Once again Many Many Thanks to each and Everyone who has supported us during 2013. May we wish you all a Happy , Healthy and Peaceful New Year and hope to meet many of you all again in 2014.

Much Love

From us all  at  Megan's Flutterby Fund
