Wayne’s story

Hey wonderful donator!!

Wayne and Elliot are planning on doing the unthinkable... cutting and donating their luscious locks to raise money for the charity Mind, in what has been branded as "The Well Overdue Trim".

A cause that is close to both of them, Wayne's friend and previous team mate took his own life late last year, whilst Elliot has seen first-hand the devastating impact that depression can have on people close to him. Mental health issues are often linked to American Football as a troubling side effect, a sport which both play and love. For these reasons they are trying to raise awareness of mental health and raise money for the charity Mind.

In addition to the donations to Mind, the guys will be cutting off over 7 inches of their lovingly grown, rapunzel-like hair to donate it to the Little Princess Trust, who provide real hair wigs to children and young adults who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment and other illnesses.

The cut will be taking place at Tamworth Phoenix's (their football team) home game on Sunday 17th of June against Merseyside Nighthawks as part of the Northern Premiership Conference. This is at Pack Meadow, in Coleshill, Birmingham, with kick off at 14:00pm, and the cut to take place after the game, at roughly 17.30pm. They are also willing (and apparently trusting enough!) to allow the highest 2 donators to cut some of the hair if they are able to make it to the haircut (and naturally the game).

Mind are committed to helping people with mental health issues. When you're experiencing a mental health problem, supportive and reliable information can change your life. That's what Mind do. They empower people to understand their condition and the choices available to them.

Mind provides help and support directly to those who need it most. With a network of around 140 local Minds offer specialised support and care based on the needs of the communities they support.

Additional help is provided via;

* Their Infoline which offers callers confidential help

* Their Legal Line which provides information on mental health related law to the public, service users, family members/carers, mental health professionals

and mental health advocates

* Their award-winning publications and website, now certified by the Information Standard.

And please donate generously, please, please, pleeeeeease!



1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem. With your help, we can help people like Laura:

'Mind brought me back from the edge. Without them, I don't know how I would've found a way out. They helped me change the course of my life.'

We believe no-one should have to face a mental health problem alone and without your generosity we would not be able to provide people with the vital information and support that can change their lives for the better. Your support will help us improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding of mental health issues.

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!
