Hello everyone,



There's a great reason why we are launching our campaign - why? Because the amazing Harri needs a few heroes to help buy a new wheelchair. Much like the new blockbuster movie of the year Avengers End Game, Harri needs her very own team of Avengers. So whether you fancy yourself as Thor, Black Panther, Captain America, Black Widow or Hulk - We need you.

Electric wheelchairs may be used for many reasons such as cooking food, shopping, going up an incline etc. However, the fundamental reason why an electric wheelchair is essential for Harri is so she can safely travel to her vital Hospital Appointments.

The creation of these chairs is recognised to be a significant development in the history of humanity. Compared with the hand-operated wheelchairs, these types of chairs are simple to control, need less energy and work. An electric chair will dramatically heighten the wellbeing and quality of life for Harri. This amazing bit of tech will literally transform her life.

It's not just great for Harri, it's even bigger. This chair will also mean respite for Harri's incredible team of carers, who have been supporting Harri physically, mentally and emotionally for many years - This chair would boost their wellbeing and happiness too! We all want our loved ones to enjoy as much independence as they can.

This isn't a vanity ploy for a fancy wheelchair, power mobility will enable Harri to move within her home and community and it can help maximise independence even with her limited mobility.

Empathy, Love, Kindness, Patience, Warmth, Fun - These are just some of the phrases that Harriet personifies. The reason why we have started a Go Fund Me Page is that we are looking for your help to fund Harri's new electric wheelchair.

Harri has done her research and been fitted for the right chair. It is a prescription built chair which will support her height and her conditions and is built to adapt to her needs over time. This means the chair will be a good investment and should last Harri past Armageddon! (Where she will no doubt turn it into a lawnmower)

No person likes to feel housebound and dependent on others. While people who have been injured or suffering from a debilitating disease such as Harri, may not have full functionality of their motor skills, it is still possible for them to be semi-independent and mobile.

So please please please be a superhero, be an Avenger...

Help Harri get new wheels!


*Thank you so much to everyone who has donated so far, we are forever grateful for your deep generosity and kindness. We have had to raise the amount from the original £3,700 to £4,000 because we didn't realise how much money we would lose to fees from Go Fund Me! Please continue to share with friends and family, and thank you all again, you are a real hero.*

This week was the exciting next "step" in our chair journey! The chair specialist came to the house and we took the demo model out for a spin! The chair felt really sturdy and was brilliant at handling the hill and curbs much to my surprise. Ones I have tried previously felt unsafe and unsteady but this model was great, which will really give me confidence out and about on uneven surfaces. We've even been able to tailor the chair in ways I hadnt expected which will give me so much more support and fit properly. All the measurements were taken and we should be able to order in the next few days, which means work can begin on building it. Will keep my heroes posted. Big love, Harri x

Well you incredible and lovely lot of heroes...look what we've done....WE'VE ONLY GONE AND REACHED OUR £4000 TARGET! That means we WILL HAVE a wheelchair!! I cannot believe that we've achieved our total in such a short amount of time, it has all been made possible thanks to your generosity and support! I am so grateful to each and every one of you!! The £4000 will enable us to cover the cost of the exciting new chair and the gofundme fees. Any additional funds that go over our total will go towards better quality options for the chair. We're hoping to get the chair tested and ordeted in the next couple of weeks. I'm looking forward to keeping you all updated and I send so much thanks and love! Harri x

How will this wheelchair help?
As well as all the incredible practical ways this chair is going to help myself and my carers theres another way its going to make a difference that I really want to share with you. When I started to need the manual wheelchair one thing I really missed was being able to hold hands with my husband. With him always having to push me it stops us from walking alongside each other. This makes it harder for us to have a converstation as he often cant hear me and impossible for us to hold hands. This new chair will change all of that. When I hired an electric wheelchair for the first time it was amazing to move alongside him and hold hands again! This small thing makes such a difference. This new chair will take transporting me from being a chore to a chance to enjoy each others company! You guys are making that happen and that makes me incredibly grateful! Thank you. Harri x
