Darren’s story

Having needed the support of this amazing charity when our son George was born 9 years ago, I always wanted to repay my gratitude for their support, so when the opportunity arose and they were looking for runners for the London marathon in a heartbeat the form was filled out!

George was born with are rare 1 in 3500 condition called Tracheo-Oesophageal Fistula (TOF) and Oesophageal Atresia (OA), Born 20/11 transferred to university hospital Cardiff and operated on 22/11 a roller coaster few days, not out of the woods by any means but there was a support group (TOFS) which became invaluable to us as a family.

Now 9 and doing amazing George has always wanted to say thank you so together we will fundraise and raise as much as possible along the way so TOFS can continue their amazing support to new families in their difficult times.

So in April 2020 I will take part in the London marathon stepping outside my comfort zone again be it run, walk, crawl, I will cross that finish line as a thank you to TOFS and you as my supporters and followers for your kind donations.

So please sponsor me, no matter how big or small every penny will help.


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



TOFS offers support to people born with Tracheo-Oesophageal Fistula (TOF) and/or Oesophageal Atresia (OA). These are rare congenital malformations of the gullet and windpipe. Immediate neonatal surgery is a treatment, not a complete cure. We are UK-based and receive no public-sector support at all. For more information please visit our website www.tofs.org.uk.

Registered Charity Number: 327735.

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!
