Millie’s story

For the past two and a half years I have been suffering from Anorexia Nervosa, a mental health  illness that has some very serious and devastating physical effects. My body was slowly giving up on me and I had a choice, to either continue with what I was doing and die or I could fight back and recover. As you can probably guess by the fact you’re reading this I chose to fight. This is something I could not have done without my amazing mum, who was literally my rock throughout it all. My Mum, Caroline Gaskin, also happens to be the fundraising officer for this amazing charity, and we as a family are very passionate about the help the charity does. 

A year and a half ago I could just about manage to walk around Sainsbury’s and I am now using my healthy body to run this race, the London Asics 10k on the 21st July. A way of raising money for an excellent cause, giving something back to my Mum to thank her for everything she has and continues to do to support me, and to celebrate my body for what it can do and the fact it’s here strong after everything I put it through. 

Thank you for taking your time to read this, anything you could donate would mean the world to me. 


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

Holding On Letting Go

Holding On Letting Go provides bereavement support to children, young people aged 6-16 and their families who live in Kent. They have lost someone special to them and are often struggling to cope. We invite the children and young people to attend a weekend where they get to meet others in a similar situation, tell their story and share experiences, discuss their loss and be helped to hold onto good memories and let go of painful ones. We help the children and young people to find ways of coping and developing resilience.We do not charge families for our service. We are totally reliant on donations and fundraising to provide this service and are so grateful for your support. Thank you.

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!
