Clare’s story

Delighted to have achieved automatic entry to the 2019 London Marathon through gaining a Good For Age time, I decided to support the Friends of Orchard Brae as the funds raised provide vital support for the pupils in school.

This will be my 10th marathon. I’m training hard and consistently running more miles than I have done previously. I'm excited to have the opportunity to run London Marathon and hope to inspire others to follow their dreams along the way.

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


Friends of Orchard Brae

Friends of Orchard Brae is dedicated to raising funds for Orchard Brae School, which opened in August 2017 for 150+ pupils aged 3-18 years with complex and profound disabilities. We were awarded charity status in February 2019 and run by a small group of parents/carers, family members and staff all associated with Orchard Brae School.

Our main responsibility is to source funding (approx £20,000 each year) for the running and maintenance of the school mini buses and in addition, help to purchase specialist equipment and services that enhance the learning experiences and lives of the pupils and their families.

Thank you for supporting all in the Orchard Brae School Community.

Friends of Orchard Brae is a Registered Charity in Scotland SC049024.

Registered Charity Number: SC049024.

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!
