Matthew’s story

I had always wanted to partake in a triathlon and decided a few months ago that I’d do just that. My wife and I are expecting our first child in October so I decided that the training would be far easier before the baby arrives! I had intended just to partake in this event in my usual no fuss manner, however, on June 11th at our 20 week baby scan, we discovered that our little one would be born without the limb below their left elbow. After hearing this news we found Reach and have found them a great source of insight and reassurance since.


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!
