New stretch target
Thank you to everyone who has donated so far. :-)
I had to lower the limit so Shannon's family would get all monies donated so far but I am still wanting to reach a target of £5000 to get Shannon the much needed eye gazer so she can communicate with everyone so please keep sharing and donating when you can.
Any money raised after the initial £5000 will still go to Shannon's family and they can use it to get other vital sensory equiptmant Shannon might need.

Thank you once again, your donations and support to the family are overwhelming.
THE CROWDFUNDER HAS NOW ENDED AND THE EYE GAZER PURCHASED, THANK YOU EVERYONE WHO DONATED SO FAR.
ANYONE WHO WOULD STILL LIKE TO DONATE PLEASE GO TO www.fundraisingforshannon.co.uk WHERE ALL DETAILS CAN BE FOUND.
Please help Shannon on her long road to recovery.
About the project
Shannon is a joyful, outgoing 12 year old girl whos life changed dramatically when she was knocked down by a car in March 2014, Shannon spent all of last year in hospital in Cardiff and then the childrens trust in Tadworth.
Shannon was able to come home in December which was lovely for the family to have their little girl home for Christmas. Unfortunately Shannon suffered a very bad brain injury and now requires round the clock care, her family have had to move house to a bungalow to support the changes Shannon needs.
Shannon's mum cares for her along with her dad, elder sister and brother and had to give up work to give her daughter the full time care she needs.
They have a hoist, wheelchair, other medical equiptment and mobility car, but there is so much more that the family require to help Shannon lead a fulfilled life
Shannon is in desperate need to have an eye gazer to help her communicate with everyone so all fundraising will be going towards that and anyother items the family need to help aid Shannons recovery.
Thank you for taking the time to read.
I will be carrying out a series of fundraising events throughout the year, from mountain climbing, to a half marathon walk to try and raise the money to make this come true and help the family.
Please dig deep and help the family's dream come true. It would be greatly appreciated by us all.
