vikki’s story

I am blown away and so happy to be able to run for Willen Hospice in the London marathon 2020.

Willen Hospice is an amazing charity and very close to my heart they cared for people very close to my heart, my very own dear nanny win, Vin Rutter, Lesley Eveson and one of my bestie Clare Rayner.

I can not put in to words what this charity does to help people in our community without our help and fundraising willen Hospice wouldn’t be able to provide the care and support in our local community. Last year I manage to raise an amazing £11,000 which I am extremely grateful and I couldn’t have done this without all your support. So thank you all so much we did this together. Hope we can work together again and raise as much money as we possibly can for Willen Hospice having lots of fun doing it. X x


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

Willen Hospice

Willen Hospice is an independent charity which provides specialist care to people with life limiting illnesses from the age of 18 years upwards in Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas.

Our vision is to always be there to care and our services are free to those we look after, but to continue to offer that care Willen Hospice needs to raise around £4.7million every year - that's £9 every minute - from the local community, so we rely on your generosity and support.

The Hospice is based at a quiet lakeside area close to central Milton Keynes and our dedicated team of doctors, nurses, social care professionals and other health care staff, provide round the clock care to our patients and provide ongoing support for their families.

Willen Hospice offers an inpatient unit for patients to stay at the Hospice, a dedicated community team of Clinical Nurse Specialists and Hospice at Home staff, a Patient & Family Services team offering bereavement support and a drop-in Wellbeing Centre giving those not staying at the Hospice access to our services. 

The annual running cost of the Hospice is around £5.9 million - we're very grateful to have 22% of these costs met by the NHS. The remaining 78% needs to be raised from the local community and without the dedication and support of people just like you, we couldn't provide the care we do.

Registered Charity Number: 270194.

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!
