Tough Mudder

Our founder Kelly, one of our Patron's Kristie and her fiancé Ben took part in Tough Mudder West London on 25th April. Kristie and Ben finished the Tough Mudder course overcoming almost all of the obstacles including ice dips, the electric eel and the mighty everest! Kelly unfortunately had to limp back nursing a pulled muscle!

This was a fantastic fundraising event for us and we raised over £2000.

If you are interested in running an event such as Tough Mudder or any other obstacle courses currently doing the circuits, then please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Qualifying for Gift Aid!

We're now setup with our bank, so we are finally able to set up our account and become recognized by HMRC as a charity for tax purposes. This is a fantastic piece of news as it means every time a UK tax payer makes a donation we can reclaim 25% as gift aid! We have also chose to set up a donation page with mydonate. This allows donations to be made online quickly and easily, but also allows us to keep almost all of the donations and gift aid unlike other donation pages.

Small Beginnings

We've been very busy getting the charity off the ground and as we are a small charity we're starting off small to get the ball rolling.

We've been hard at work baking for a cupcake sale which were sold at University College Of London.

We made a grand total of £350. A small but sure start
