For Karen my close friend who passed away 2016 from Breast Cancer
Over the past year I have become a bit partial to a jaunt up a mountain. So I am taking it up a notch and doing the Rat Race Man vs Mountain. 22 miles running up (and down) Snowdon. I haven't run for longer than 20 minutes since the Great North run 15 years ago so I am excited to see how this goes. I keep changing my mind about doing the whole fundraising thing so I have compromised.I am supporting two charities; Mind who support those facing mental helath problems and Barnabus who provide invaluable support for the homeless in Manchester. I would love your help supporting them by doing one or more of the following:A) Sponsor me to help keep their great work going. Barnabus don't seem to be registered on any fundraising sites so the money on this site will go to Mind and I will match the total and give that value to Barnabus. I am well known for my frugality so if knowing every penny you give means I have to match it is not enough motivation I don't know what is.B) Support the homeless in your community by speaking to them, buying them some food or a hot drink, contacting a local charity if you are concerned about someone or even just smile at them. I will be honest alot of the time I don't know what to do but there is some guidance at the links below:https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/uk-england-38221721https://www.bowery.org/homelessness/tips-help-homeless/C) Support someone who is struggling mentally by being on hand to listen to them, give them a distraction from the weight on their shoulders or even support yourself and seek help if you are struggling. Anyone who says that they havent struggled mentally from time to time is fibbing its just some people take on more than most. The link below offers more ways to helphttps://www.mind.org.uk/information-support/helping-someone-else/If you do any of the suggestions you are one of the good ones and karma has a way of paying you back :)Thank You!
Our wonderful.org appealJudge Brenda: Equal to EverythingThe life and career of Lady Hale, the most senior judge in the United Kingdom, is to be the subject of a beautifully illustrated children’s book, to be published by LAG. The book will aim to inspire primary school children with the story of a girl brought up in the North Yorkshire countryside who went on to become president of the Supreme Court, highlighting some of her achievements along the way.As the first female law commissioner, Brenda was the driving force behind the Children Act 1989, and as a judge she has been responsible for many judgments that have transformed the law. The book will not only be an inspirational story of Lady Hale’s achievements but will also introduce children to the legal system, the concept of equal access to justice, the importance of the rule of law and how it affects us all.Baroness Hale says:“It’s been an amazing life and I’m thrilled at the idea of making it into a picture book to entertain and inspire young people”The book is to be funded through donations and published in 2019, one hundred years after women were first permitted to be lawyers.See the animated trailer here: https://youtu.be/JhbfJgJQYagSupport the projectWe need to raise a minimum of £25,000 to cover creation and production costs.

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
