Eddie’s story

I took up running at the age of 70. Yes, I'm that crazy! Two marathons and five half marathons later I was really pleased to get a 'good for age' place in the London Marathon on Sunday 28 April 2019. Choosing SparkFish as the charity I wish to support was a 'no-brainer' as I have been involved in their work at Christmas and Easter for several years and know it is reaching out to thousands of young people every year. Many thanks for your support! Eddie.

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



SparkFish is a local, collaborative, Christian organisation that aims to inspire and encourage young people in faith, hope and love.

  • We engage with all young people who go to school in Reigate, Redhill and Merstham, offering support in important areas of the curriculum and school life.
  • Working as a team from local churches, we lead by example, lovingly demonstrating our own faith and supporting young people in all aspects of their lives.
  • We believe in the Christian message, and we strive to explain it relevantly and intelligently so that young people can make their own informed response.
  • We work across all ages in education, from early years to sixth form. We seek to bridge gaps and build confidence, helping young people to grow emotionally and spiritually.

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!
