Annie’s story

On the 19th May I will be running the Hackney Half-Marathon to raise money for the Molly Rose Foundation.

Molly was the daughter of some of my parents' closest friends, part of a larger group that my Mum has known since she was a child herself. I’ve always felt very lucky to be supported in everything that I do by such a great bunch of people, who really do feel like family.

I’d known Molly since she was born and watched her grow up into a kind and talented teenager. I took it for granted that I’d know her forever, so her death by suicide in November 2017 came as a huge shock. She was just days away from her 15th birthday. I’d already wrapped up her birthday presents.

In the days that followed Molly’s death, her family and friends decided to set up a charity in her memory with the overarching goal of helping to prevent more young people from taking their own lives.

Our aim is to help give people the skills to recognise those suffering from mental illness so that they can connect them to the support and practical advice they need. Every donation will help us to raise awareness of the importance of mental wellbeing and offer both Mental Health First Aid and Suicide Awareness training. 

You might have seen coverage about Molly in the news, but if you want to know more about her story you can see an interview that her Dad Ian gave to the BBC here. 

I would be very grateful for any donations, I’m sure that a few people reading this will be very surprised to see me running a half marathon (especially anybody who remembers watching me attempting to play sport at school) so its going to be quite a challenge!

Thank you!

Love Annie

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!
