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.

Hi Everyone ,

A short update now we are at the start of Autumn.  We have been busy doing a few things and had wonderful people doing various events for us raising money and have had requests that we are all up to date with , the last one being only this month .

I also need to say a very Big Thank you to BEDFORDSHIRE ROLLER TEAM who raised money for us by having a cake stall at their Roller Team Event. £143.75. We have also had some  more donations via Virgin Money Giving It is so kind of everyone to give their support to our cause.

We also have a Page on Face Book      ..............   ATTIC EMPORIUM  ...........where I am listing handmade craft items and donated items for sale . Proceeds to Megan's Fund. We do the craft fayres etc when we can to sell these but we have quite a lot and I really need to move some of it and thought this a good idea to try. We have sold some which is great .

Only leaves me now to wish you a Happy Autumn and lots of fun with  Halloween and Bonfire Night and before we know it Christmas will be upon us.

Thank you Bedfordshire Roller Team xxxxx
