Team Autism Angels UK’s story

From 26th December we will be walking 500 miles around Yorkshire in order to raise much needed funds for this beloved charity.


Sarah and Nicki will be walking with the beautiful horses Akua-Blue and Riley in order to raise awareness for Autism, Mental Health and the power of Nature.


Just like it is not possible to take a wild horse into the city centre and expect it to conform, it is also not always possible for a person to do the same. We need training, we need the opportunity to make mistakes and we need people to have their awareness raised about how to thrive in adversity in order for this to happen.


This is possibly the worst time of the year to do a walk like this but we have chosen to do so because it is also such a powerful time of the year. January is when most people feel alone, depressed, the rates of domestic abuse rises and the amount of children being taken into care peaks significantly. Parents who have children with additional needs make up a high part of those statistics. We hope to raise money so that those who are most affected can get quick and life changing support from the team at Autism Angels.


All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.

What makes us wonderful?

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!
