MEGAN'S FLUTTERBY FUND

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.

UPCOMING EVENTS

Hi everyone,

On Saturday May 17th  we are attending the Shining Stars of Northamptonshire awards where we have been nominated by some lovely people and are in the finalists. It will be just an honour to attend such a lovely evening with so many wonderful people.

On June 14th Kate Favell will be doing "The Mud Run"  for the charity in Lutterworth. I think this is going to be a very fun muddy day and we will be there to cheer her on. x

In August  Spencer Lyman will be abseiling down Express Lift  Tower for us and that will be something to see too Of course we will be there too.
Would be great if any of you could join us at either of the events We could probably find somewhere nice at Lutterworth for a picnic.

A Just texting page will be set up in the next couple of days for anyone wishing to sponsor Kate and Spencer and I will post ASAP.

A big thank you to Kate and Spencer for supporting Megan's Flutterby Fund  we think you are both brilliant to do these not so easy events for us and we look forward to joining you and having lots of fun and cheering you on.
