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 .

New Year Update Of the Fund

Hi Everyone,

We are now into the New Year and hope that it will be a really Happy and Healthy one for us all. I know this season can be really tough on our little ones with all the nasty colds and viruses and already have had some poorly, so we send all get well wishes and hugs and speedy recoveries.
We also have some that have upcoming surgeries and will keep updated with those as they happen.

A massive Thank you to everyone that sent donations to us over the Christmas period a total sum of  £105 plus the sale of our Nutcracker Soldier £100  and  £75 Attic Sales Total £280  in December which is brilliant.

In  2016 we fulfilled 6 requests from Pulmolink oxymeter, 2 large bubble tubes, weighted blanket,tablet and help towards some communal wind chimes at JGS  total expenditure £2108.05 and fund raising and donations for the year £1397.45 which we think is super for a small local charity and still have a nice sum to bring forward for this year.

We hope to get some events sorted out through this year that maybe some of you can join us in and will post as and when we arrange them all.

Once again thank you to all those that continually support Megan's Fund and all our best wishes for the year ahead.

Gisela ,Anna and Trustees
