* These amounts are including Gift Aid where claimed by the sponsor, but do not include credit and debit card processing fees by Virgin Money Giving, so cannot give an exact amount. Therefore the pre-Gift Aid amount is used for totals, but the amount raised is indeed higher than that (ie between the two amounts).

Through the amazing support given to the Push 500 Wheelchair Challenge, the following charities are receiving all of the funds being raised (as noted above) – there are no costs taken out of that amount as Push 500 is self-funded. Push 500’s self-funding includes the great support from those helping arrange individual events, providing transport, giving up their time, joining in the events, and generally enabling it to happen. Without this support and generosity, the Challenge would be much reduced in scope, distance covered, and amounts raised.

Finally, the most important people in this event fall into two categories; the people involved in the charities through work and through volunteering, and the people sponsoring the events. Thank you for your support.
