Why do we do this I hear you ask? We are all working together to fundraise for two all-terrain wheelchair Kangoo buggies!

Our aim is to lend this out to families of children with disabilities for their holidays. It is suitable for the beach, parkland, forest, attaches to a bike as a trailer, converts to a car seat and even has ski's! It's simply far too expensive for each family to own and maintain. For children who are wheelchair bound and those struggle physically the chance of them ever experiencing the beach, play in the sand, dip their toes in the sea are slim to none. To have one we can give them and their families experiences and memories (like we made as kids) they never thought possible.

Want to join us? We are always looking for new team members. Email us on conquerors@littlehiccups.co.uk for more info.

Our fundraising target is £15,000! Want to donate to our worthy cause? You can pick a Conqueror below to donate to or you can contribute to our team fund here. It all goes into the same pot but the Conqueror who raises the most will win a well-earned prize!

And to everyone that has already sponsored us - a massive thank you! You can view our thank you clip here. You are all amazing.

Hiccup Conquerors Update - May 2014

So we're half way through we're done amazingly well! We have managed to raise £11,000 AND HAVE TWO CHAIRS ORDERED!

Never in a million years did we expect this much support. With your generosity, the conquerors energy and commitment and these inspirational children ThermaCassa and Leeds Radio Aire generously bought two of the chairs!

But we’re not stopping there. Like most good stories we don’t have a clear beginning, middle and end. We didn’t know we’d get this far. We’ve laughed, cried, grown and changed our plans. We want to make the very best of everybody's generosity of money and time. We think that with a little more help we can hit our original £15000 and use the money to make and ending this…

  • One more Kangoo
  • 3 years of safe storage
  • Legal advice for hire agreements
  • 3 years insurance cover
  • 3 years of bi-annual servicing
  • 3 year general repair agreement
  • Spare covers for each chair
  • Little Hiccups Family Holiday
  • Possibility of a Safe Space Voyager bed

Yes you read that right, A FAMILY HOLIDAY….

This year Little Hiccups had three major goals to:

  • Provide an Outreach Service for those families who need more one-to-one support - TICK
  • Raise funds for the Kangoo Wheelchairs to lend out to families to enable children in wheelchairs to access the beach, parks holiday etc – TWO PURCHASED – ONE TO GO
  • Raise funds for a fun-filled short Little Hiccups Holiday with a support service so that families are able to relax and enjoy themselves in the knowledge that their little ones are safe – THE MONEY FROM THE CONQUERORS WILL MAKE THIS HAPPEN TOO

Kelly BakerKelly Baker

I was thinking of ways to raise money to help reach the target needed for an all terrain chair for children and families to use at Little Hiccups. I walked over 90 miles already this year so that was done, maybe a swim of some kind... oh, not the strongest swimmer wouldn't make it. so I needed something that I could achieve, create the biggest impact and raise the most money.

Haha it's mad and crazy but think of the impact...  I have approx 2ft of ginger hair (as you should all know!!) that (can you tell I’m trying to build a dramatic effect...) I will have chopped and shaved in return for sponsorship and donations!!!

My 7 year old daughter and my 11 year old niece are going to sit in a bath of beans for 15 minutes to play their part in this important task. The big event will be a fun filled afternoon, with raffle, music, nibbles, laughter and for sure, without a doubt tears.

Thank you and Hope to see you there!!
