Paul’s story

Lejog? Sounds like running in France to me. Ok sign me up Andy.

What? It's cycling... eh? From Land's End in Cornwall to John O'Groats in Scotland...100+miles per day for 9 days... so definitely not running? errrrrr

Well, most people know I do a lot of running, mostly sillily long runs, but I don't do a lot of cycling. Andy on the other hand does a lot of cycling.

So from finishing my big running event of the year at the end of July, I've been rapidly trying to turn running legs into cycling legs.

So this is going to be quite a different challenge for me.

My friends Emily and Steve volunteer for CVSRT. Like all the Mountain Rescue Teams in the country, they do an amazing service saving people.

Alternatively, am also raising money for Mind:

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!
