Carol’s story

I am running the Sheffield Half Marathon on the 9th April 2017 to raise money for the TBPI (Trauma Brachial Plexus Injury) Group. They have provided lots of information and support to my husband after he had a mountain bike accident in 2015 where he suffered (along with other injuries) a Brachial Plexus Injury which, for him, meant two of his nerves had been pulled from his spinal cord paralysing his right arm. TBPI Group are a small charity and I hope to at least raise a little money for them to continue the work they do and to create awareness of this life changing injury. A link to their website is found here


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

Trauma Brachial Plexus Injuries Group

Brachial plexus; A complex network of nerves, arising from the spinal cord that supplies the arm, hand and part of the shoulder with all movement and feeling. There are varying degrees of injury and each individual case varies greatly from any other. Created by and for adults who have a Trauma Brachial Plexus Injury (TBPI) the purpose of this much needed support group is to supply information and support to adults coping with a TBPI and to help achieve a better understanding of the impact these injuries may have on the individual and their family.

Our website www.tbpi-group.org contains a wealth of information about every aspect concerning the injury largely compiled by people who have first hand experience. We have medical information supplied by the most eminent hospital teams in the UK that specialize in Brachial Plexus Injuries, legal advice from one of the top firms in the country specializing in traumatic injury, help with social security issues, pain management and much, much more.

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!
