Tommy Robinson Crowdfunder Raises £40,000 For Soldier’s Daughter With Cerebral Palsy
A crowdfunder launched by Tommy Robinson has raised over £40,000 to fund a new electronic wheelchair for Daisy, the 7-year-old daughter of a member of the British armed forces, who suffers with cerebral palsy.
The fundraiser, launched on Wednesday, has raised a total of £40,921 (at time of writing), with thousands more being raised every few hours.
Daisy, who has five sisters and two brothers, has been in a wheelchair her whole life after her family found she had Cerebral Palsy on Christmas Eve a few years ago.
As a result, she has never been able to move herself around or have any freedom.
But that all changed when she got a visit from Tommy Robinson this week, who launched a crowdfunder to pay for the £21,768 electronic wheelchair which would finally give Daisy control over what she does and where she goes.
Within 24 hours, Tommy’s fundraiser had smashed the £21.8k needed, with all excess funds going towards helping similar children of other military families.
Writing on the GoFundMe page for Daisy, Tommy said: “We did it! In less than 24 hours, we crowdfunded the cost of Daisy’s new wheelchair! She’ll be so happy.
“But let’s not stop now. Let’s raise funds for more military families in need.
“I’m setting up a registered charitable trust that will focus on military families — like Daisy, and like Gareth Knox before her. In fact, Knox and Daisy’s mother have both agreed to sit as trustees on that charitable trust.
“We’ve contacted a law firm that specializes in charitable trusts, and we are drafting the paperwork now (registrations take several months).
“So let’s keep the goodwill going. Let’s give back to the families who have given so much to us. Let’s aim for £50,000!”
