Paying for my own walking frame

I have discovered my current walking frame isn't right (it's a Rollator walker) and have been told that i need a Posterior Posture Walker (some know it as a spider frame, the type that is often used for CP). Unfortunately i have also been told that i will have to pay for it myself, which is £800-£900 that i don't have.
Has anybody had any success with finding grants for this kind of stuff (Google is being increadibly unhelpful), or with CrowdFunding/GoFundMe? the problem with using those sites is that i can't even set anything up until my apointment with the company i've found and they've had me test one and they confirm they'll deal with me.
I'm struggling a bit with all of this
Thanks in advance x
