Kieron’s story

I'm running the New York Marathon to raise money for Mind and I'll be matching your donations pound for pound (up to £1,000). It's my 50th this year so I wanted to celebrate by running in New York again, kicking off the Wonderful Organisation and doing something I can feel proud of. The amazing work of Yannick McCabe Costa, who has developed this site in his own time for Wonderful is massively appreciated.

The last time I ran the New York Marathon was 2002 and I'm (stupidly) trying to beat the time I managed 14 years ago - 3 hours 43 minutes. I feel like I'm setting myself up for a failure, but hey ho! I've been training hard and the Sunday long runs have been exhausting. However, it's a tremendous cause and I'm thrilled to be running for Mind. Your generosity and support is hugely appreciated. Very many thanks!!

Mind

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.

Last year:

  • Our network of over 140 local Minds supported 375,000 people, through services such as counselling and back to work mentoring.
  • 65,000 queries were answered by our Helplines;
  • 460,000 free information booklets distributed through our local Minds and charity shops;
  • 10.7 million visited our website; and
  • 27,000 people received support through our online community Elefriends, with 80% feeling more supported since joining.

However there is still so much more that we need to do.

Registered Charity Number: 219830.

Our wonderful partners

Our wonderful partners - who support us with cash and services - make it possible for us to pass EVERY PENNY raised from your fundraising efforts and generous donations to our charities, including Gift Aid. Of course, we would be unable to do so without them.

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!
