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.

Summer Holidays AND Now Autumn

Hi Everyone,

We hope that you have all had a wonderful Summer and those that have been away on holiday have had lots of fun and enjoyed it all.
We have to mention a thank you to Helen Wingfield who ran the Milton Keynes half marathon to raise funds for us. Many thanks Helen and I have heard from her mum that she and he  husband are expecting their first baby in the New Year. Such wonderful news congratulations to you both.

Summer has been quiet as usual but we have had enquires about equipment and awaiting feed back from professionals etc. which all takes a little time.

We now have a group on Face Book called "The Attic Emporium" which has a number of things For Sale that have been donated to us or are all Handmade crafts. There will be more items for sale as we build up towards Christmas and we have already got tables booked for the November
 Table Top / Craft Event  at St Francis Church will post later for that event date etc.

I hope all the children have had a lovely first day back to school and all those changing schools or just starting good luck and really happy times ahead.
Sending lots of healing love to any of the children that are sick at this time or undergoing treatment we send all our thoughts to you and your family and get well soons.

With all our Best Wishes

All of us at Megan's Fund  xxx
