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.

We hope you like our Blog and please feel free to post your comments and Thankyou for taking the time to look .

UPDATE for the Fund

Hi Everyone,

Just an update with a few things going on.

Firstly we have purchased a large piece of equipment for a child delivery will be 11.07.2014 so that is wonderful. We will see if the family wishes to post pictures but that is entirely up to them we make no demands on them to do so xxx

Small Craft Fayre done yesterday which we raised £21.50 which was fine as we are raising funds through the craft stalls for the children's Christmas Party and so far we have  £82.50 and another bigger one to attend in a couple of weeks so all going well.

On August 2nd there is" MEGAN'S FLUTTERBY FUND CHARITY ABSEIL." Spencer Lyman will be abseiling down the Express Lift Tower for the Charity. Hope the weather stays fine and some of you are able to support his efforts on the day.
If you wish to sponsor him he has a Virgin justgiving page where you can donate what ever you wish every little helps towards helping the children in our community.

Hugs to you all

Everyone at Megan's Fund.
