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.

Shining Stars Of Northamptonshire Awards

Hi Everyone,

Last night we attended the Shining Stars of Northamptonshire hosted by Macy's Memory charity. We were finalist in the Fundraiser of the Year category and were so amazed that Megan's Flutterby  Fund won the award. It was a fantastic evening with so many lovely people all doing their wonderful things to help others in the community and others that despite lots of  medical issues and personnel things plus much more overcome the adversity and still smile and carry on, such amazing people. Congratulations to all the other winners in their categories.

We would like to thank everyone that nominated us for the award and a special thank you to Katrina Baker and her family and friends that have put in so much hard work over these weeks to put on such a wonderful event.

With Lots of Best wishes
