Loose change challenge fundraising page

Helen Davies

My page:

Hi, thanks for visiting my page.

My challenge is to collect as much loose change as possible and donate to Genetic Alliance UK on 13th April, which is National Undiagnosed Childrens' Day. 

Why this charity?  Well if you click here you can read my daughter Megan's story Genetic Alliance need funding for genetic research and help families like us get a diagnosis for their kids.  Megan has a syndrome without a name (she's a SWAN!) and at the moment we have no idea what is causing her severe, life-limiting disabilities.  No diagnosis means no idea how to help her or what the future holds.

If you are able to help please:

  1. Wash out a jam jar (or find anything suitable to keep coins in!)
  2. Put your loose change in it at the end of every day
  3. On April 13th count the contents of the change, bag it and pay it in at your Bank then donate the amount via this page.  I am happy to come and collect loose change from anyone based in the North West if you e-mail me on

Genetic Alliance / SWAN UK have provided amazing support to us and, if we can raise enough money to help them fund more research, we may be able to help my Megan and other undiagnosed kids throughout the UK.

Please help if you can xx
