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.

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

A VERY HAPPY AND HEALTHY NEW YEAR

Hi Everyone,

As an old year begins to come to a close and a New One fast approaching may I take this opportunity from everyone at the fund to wish you all a Very Happy & Healthy 2016.

 For all those wonderful people that have supported and donated to the fund  through 2015 we thank you all so very much with out you we would not be able to continue helping the children and families with the much needed equipment  that the NHS is unable to supply.

This year we have purchased two chairs which were our most expensive buys and several other items of swings, rockers, bubble tubes etc. We already have a request going through to start the new year off too, which is wonderful.
I will keep everyone posted on what is happing during the fourth coming year and hope that some of you will be able to join us on the planned events .

With all Our Best wishes

From Everyone at Megan's Fund xxxxx
