MidasPlus help local needy individuals
Founded in 2005 and run by 3 unpaid volunteers, Ray Blowers, Felicity Wylie and Mike Wylie, MidasPlus Fundraising is a registered charity providing financial support for needy people and organisations in South Middlesex, North Surrey & West Berkshire. It was formed to raise money from local people and local businesses specifically for local individuals, families, groups or organisations in need. MidasPlus have raised in excess of £100,000, all of which has been given to deserving local causes. Many of these are people who cannot get help from the authorities or from other charities. Some recent examples are: buying a powered wheelchair for a man with severe disabilities, installing a phone line for an elderly couple in very poor health, contributing towards a monitor for an autistic child and paying for a holiday for a group of people with special needs. There are many other similar cases. We have also helped several small charities set up successful fundraising events and made donations for specific projects including providing two new scooters for Staines Shopmobility.
MidasPlus raises most of its funds by holding local “fun” events. Over the last few years we have held Dinners and an Elvis night at the runnymede-on-thames, Valentine Balls, a Golf Day at Laleham Golf Club, a Karaoke Evening with dinner at Mamma Mia Ristorante, a bucket collection at Harlequins Rugby and a duck races on Staines-upon-Thames Day held every year on the last Sunday in June.
Tell MidasPlus about a local person, family, group or organisation that needs help. Any worthy causes however large or small will be considered as long as it’s in this area.
