Bedroom and Wetroom for Grace

£3,865 of £6,480 goal

Raised by 63 people in 33 months
Grace is our 5year old daughter and she has cerebral palsy. She was born 12weeks premature and unfortunately she suffered a severe brain haemorrhage which has resulted in her having this condition. 3 Years ago we where advised to apply for a disability facilities grant from our local council to have our house adapted for grace as she cannot walk or do anything for herself, she currently uses a manual wheelchair but is awaiting the arrival of a powered chair. After discussing multiple options all of Graces medical professionals agreed the safest option for grace would be a single storey extension to the rear of our property to provide grace with a ground floor bedroom and wetroom with shower, closomat toilet, rise and fall sink and a H frame to H frame hoist, this will also give her the most independence. Unfortunately after 3years of battling with our local council they have decided that even though this is what she needs to fulfill an independent life its too expensive for them to warrant building or funding it. Which brings us to today and the reason we are doing all of this, we desperately need to raise the £50,000 so we can get the work done ourselves so we can provide grace with a safe risk free home where she can live as independently as possible. Please please help us to help Grace. All donations will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for reading Graces story

Hello Everyone, sorry for the delay in updates we have had alot going on behind the scenes with the council. We are pleased to announce that the council are now giving Grace the £30,000 grant that she is entitled to, which is a huge relief and will be a huge help towards getting her the bedroom /wetroom she desperately needs. We do still have to top the money up for her by £6480, but we are nearly there so anyone with any ideas for upcoming events please get in touch with us through the facebook page Amazing Grace. She is literally within touching distance of getting what she so desperately needs. Thank you for all your continued support xxx

Please support this cause if you can, Shame on you Blackburn Council, Grace has Disabilities and I feel that as a council the very least you should provide for her is a safe and risk free home where she can be as independent as possible. It is disgraceful that you are putting so much extra pressure and stress on to her family. Please donate if you can, show the council up. I Hope that you are able to raise the funds needed to provide a safe home for Grace.
