Hi, my name is Team Leonie

edited April 2018 in Start here and say hello!
Not really sure how to word this . Two things really I have a mobility car for my Daughter Leonie whose 5 .5 years old . She has now passed her power chair test ” yehhh “ but the ford smax I have will not fit her powerchair in when it’s ready to pick up or be able to transport her about with her chair . I’ve already paid £2500 to get a bigger car only a year & half ago . I can’t afford another high payment just to get a bigger vehicle and to get it adapted for her . What do I do ? Please . Secondly my eldest sons friend set up a justgiving page for leonie & me because we’ve been to see a specialist for having a SDR operation in Nottingham and he will do the operation BUT it’s not funded on the nhs . So for 3 weeks we’ve been doing fundraising to get the amount she needs and the aftercare which is the most expensive part ! Could anyone advise me ? Thank you so much ! Vicky x
