Samantha’s story

How many times have you switched on the news and been saddened by a report of a young person committing an act of violence? I know I have but, up until now, I certainly didn't ask how that violence could have been prevented. That's where the Violence Intervention Project comes in.

This amazing charity works with young people who have often experienced a significant trauma, such as domestic violence, to prevent it leading them down a path to damaging behaviour such as gang culture and violent crime.

I've committed to run a half marathon to raise funds for the charity's vital work. I'm their first supporter to fundraise via a challenge event so any donation you could make, even a couple of pounds, would mean a lot - especially to the young people who they support.

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


The Violence Intervention Project

The Violence Intervention Project works with young people up to the age of 25 who have been, or are at risk of becoming, involved in violent behaviour.

The bulk of our work is outreach sessions, where we go into the community to work with young people in groups or on an individual basis.

We encourage the people we are helping to drive the discussions so that they can come to understand their emotions – and become better at managing them.

Registered Charity Number: 1175817.

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!
