The Wonderful Week

Do something wonderful for charity. - Phil Neville

2nd-10th September 2017

We're proud to announce that former Everton, Manchester United and England footballer, Phil Neville and his wife, Julie, are taking part in our inaugural Wonderful Week this September.

The Nevilles have pledged to cover a distance of 100 miles during the week - swimming, cycling and running - to raise money for their chosen cause, The Good Life Orphanage.

What's more, they are encouraging everyone to clock up miles, bake cakes, shave their heads, do some yoga or whatever it takes to support charities they care about. And guarantees that 100% reaches those charities.

Speaking on the announcement, Julie commented, "We are absolutely thrilled to be taking part as a family in the Wonderful Week, keeping us fit and raising much-needed funds for the orphanage."

We'd like to encourage others to join us in this fundraising initiative and do something wonderful for a charity close to their own hearts. - Phil Neville

Julie added "As well as raising money for children who need it, we want to make more people aware of the fundraising options available. It is now possible, through, to maximise fundraising efforts and ensure that every penny reaches its intended cause."

Phil and Julie will be posting their progress updates on Twitter and Instagram using the #wonderfulweek hashtag from 2nd September.

Following a successful season of racing around Europe, Katie Archibald, Hannah Walker and Team WNT will be showing their support for The Christie in Manchester: a very special hospital which serves cancer patients close to where they are based as a team.

The hospital holds an important place in their hearts and provides world class care for its patients. They will be rolling their way through the Wonderful Week and working together to try and raise as much money as they can for The Christie. They have set a fundraising target of £500 and have committed to a combined distance of 1500 miles over the week.

Founder of, Kieron James, who will be pounding pavements at the Great North Run for The Christie Charity, said: "In this day and age, losing five per cent of funds raised to sites like JustGiving - along with additional card processing fees - feels like a high price for charities to pay. That's why we charge nothing at all; we make no deductions from Gift Aid and, through the generosity of our Corporate Sponsors, we also cover debit and credit card transaction fees - ensuring charities receive every last penny."

"We're thrilled to partner with Phil and Julie for the Wonderful Week, working towards our shared goal of raising more money for all our wonderful charities, including The Christie and The Good Life Orphanage," added Kieron.

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!
