Team Mixed Veg Rides’s story

Dear sponsors,

I am happy to report that Pete Holmes and Steve Kemp smashed(!?) their 3rd event as a double act on Saturday 22nd June, following previous outings at the London Marathon in 2010 and the Marathon du Medoc in 2016. 

We ran 20 miles over rocky paths, up steep slopes and splashed our way through huge puddles and even rivers before enjoying the relative comfort of the 30 mile bike ride to the finish line. It was, we assure you, not a walk in the park, but the scenery was stunning and it helped take our minds off the pain....

Please be generous if you can - this was no mean feat for a couple of maturing athletes!

Many thanks,


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

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!
