Mark’s story

Having started with Couch 2 5k in 2016, I am now looking at doing my first half marathon.

Trying to get sub 2 hours, running while dressed as Spiderman. Why Spiderman? When else can a man go out dressed as a superhero and have no-one asking why!

I'm looking to raise money to provide sports equipment for under 5's in three preschools. Fleet Baptist pre-school is officially 'Outstanding' but some of the children would love to be 'out-running' with new equipment as well. 50% of the money raise will be for Fleet

As a preschool, we also support a preschool in Sri Lanka - where the impact of the tsunami is still evident; and have a link to an preschool in Zimbabwe - where poverty and AIDs are everyday realities. The children in these preschools are still children and love to play. 25% of funds raised will go to each of these settings


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

Fleet Baptist Pre-school

We are a small, but outstanding preschool set in Fleet, Hampshire. Our preschool runs from the Point building next to Victoria Road car, behind the Harlington Centre. We believe that all children are exceptional and deserve the best.

As a Christian Preschool we:

·      are inclusive. We welcome families from any faith or belief system.

·      promote equality. We believe that all are equal in the site of God regardless of their gender, class, race, ethnicity, or ability.

·      recognise difference. While all are equal, sometimes additional support, resources or interventions are required to allow children to achieve the same outcomes.

·      promote individuality. Variety and diversity are an indication of a creative God. We don't want all children to turn out the same, but be free to grow into their uniqueness.

·      demonstrate love. We recognise research that shows children develop best with secure attachments and a culture of care.

 

As well as providing Outstanding provision (according to Ofsted) we also support a preschool in Sri Lanka and one in Zimbabwe as well as employing a family support worker . 

Registered Charity Number: 1102150.

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!
