Rock to Rock challenge

Osprey Leisure Centre receives no regular external funding and is a true local charity, enabling use of this superb facility for the community.www.ospreyleisure.co.ukTom and I cycled from Gibraltar to Portland (with a boat from Cherbourg!) to raise money for 2 projects - 1) a raised platform in the shallow end of the pool to enable teaching swimming to younger children and 2) towards replacement of the double entrance doors which are leaky and awkward even for able bodied people , need to significantly improve them for less able access.The distance was 1420 miles - a daunting thought as we set off from Gibraltar.We both cycled the whole way (though Tom had to miss a day due to a chest infection) supported by friends and family. We started the ride on June 4th and arrived at Osprey June 22nd . We wanted an adventure and I have been involved in setting up and supporting the charity for 20 years , Tom generously agreed to support this cause with his significant enthusiasm and skill , including detailed planning of the route.We will cover ALL our costs which means ALL the money you generously may choose to donate goes towards the charity. Thank you so much to those of you who have already given money.Publicity for this project has meant we have had contact from the Will Mackaness trust to support the swimming platform project , which I am really pleased about.Please follow our blog https://www.facebook.com/Rock-to-Rock-Challenge-586058741755930/?ref=aymt_homepage_panelWonderful.org do not charge any fees and ALL the money you give , including GiftAid , goes to the charity.If you feel able to support us - 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!
