Bionic Arm Bingo & Quiz on Saturday 7th March 2020
On 28th June I first posted my Go Fund Me Page to raise money for a Bionic Arm. It was a huge step for me, as before this I didn’t really acknowledge or talk about my arm to people. Some people didn’t even realise I had one arm because of the realistic looking prosthetic arm that I wore and still wear from time to time, but less and less. Despite how daunting this felt it’s been the best, most liberating thing I’ve ever done.
Since that day, I’ve raised £16,350 towards the cost of a £25,000 limb with the support of friends and family as well as lots of kind people I don’t know! In September I took part in Tough Mudder backed by a Bionic Army who all signed up to help me reach my target. Others have taken on their own challenges, completing some serious lengths in the pool and smashing the Manchester half Marathon.
We partied to the sounds of my favourite Space Invader David Bowie at Shit Indie Disco, nails were painted and many a slice of Victoria sponge was devoured at Beauty By Jen and a festive tombola in December raised lots of cash and Christmas cheer.
People have generously donated their own money as well as prizes for a raffle, raised money through work, spread the word by sharing the page and generally been absolutely sound throughout all of this!
I’m now throwing one last fundraiser on Saturday 7th March in Revelución De Cuba on the Albert Dock before I get the ball rolling to buy my bionic arm. Tickets for the night include entry into a quiz and bingo, for which there'll be some amazing prizes. Hope to see you there!
