Need help with mobility equipment for my DD

It's a very late post! I have been so busy and ill, that kept postponing to write for the blog and its probably too late.
In our last appointment with a community paediatrician we discussed if there any pushchairs available for my little Vicky as she is growing out of her PhillandTeds. And then I have received a report/feedback letter, where it says that he will ask Vika's OT to prescribe her a wheelchair :( So I went on a mission to find a special needs buggy that will serve us in our daily life for many years more to come. And have found Kangoo one. We loved it! It is perfect for us in cense that it can be adopted for city use or all terrain. But! It comes with a hefty price of starting £2000 just for frame. No rain cover or anything. And then there is a Theratrike, a special needs bicycle which costs around £800. Victoria will enjoy so much to be able to ride her bike independently along with her older sister :)
I got a big support from a group of moms from our Russian moms in London community to start a fundraiser and what an amazing start it was! In just 4 days we have raised almost a thousand pounds. And then it slowed down. Wright now we are 3 days away from the dead line with only 50% of needed sum.
I have two family(and not only) photographers who are offering their services with all the proceeding going to the fund. If you are interested or know anyone who would be, please see below for photographers' contacts.
If you can donate, even a pound makes a difference, or share and help to spread the word, anything is very much appreciated!
I am ranting and not putting my words together very good, I apologise as I'm unwell and have foggy brain these few days...
