Sharing in times of need

Skiggle is a non-profit online community for individuals, carers and families seeking care-based essential items.

We’re here to help each other in unexpected times of need because you never know when something essential might be forgotten, go missing, or need replacing.

Our growing network is made up of individuals who are willing to help others by providing missing consumables and equipment in times of need. So, whether you’re running out of specialist feed, continence products or suction catheters, with Skiggle, there’s a community ready to come to your aid.

Sing While You Shield

"Sing While You Shield" while our world is upside down during the Coronavirus pandemic: fill your house with music with a personalised recording by professional singers Aidan and Juliet!

If only for a moment, although it is a moment often on repeat "Alexa: replay the song" we have turned to music through our shielding journey, whether it be Disney for Will, 80's pop for Christine or classical for Helen. This brings us so much pleasure and joy! We often find ourselves belting out a tune (not necessarily in tune), and dancing like no-one can see us!

Does music have a place in your home too? Would you like to hear something a little bit different? Aidan and Juliet would love to sing a song just for you, with a personalised message to go with it. They are the most wonderful singers who have offered to help lift your spirits and bring a fountain of joy to your own living room by singing your favourite song from a range of Musical Theatre, Disney classics, Pop music, Classical operas, Alternative Rock and Folk music! *Phew*

All you have to do is leave us a donation, choose a song from our songbook and send in your request! 

Please support our fundraiser by visiting our Just Giving page and the songbook here

"A total stranger coming to our rescue when we forgot to bring a feeding tube extension with us. They came out in the dark to meet us and saved our weekend."
