MidasPlus Fundraising was set up to help needy people in Middlesex and Surrey Plus surrounding areas. Hence the name MidasPlus.
The charity is run by 3 Trustees – all local people, working on a voluntary basis, nobody gets paid so that all the money we receive goes directly to our causes. These could be local community groups or individuals, but with money tight, we are focusing more and more on helping people suffering financial hardship who have physical or learning difficulties and have a need for equipment or services, that cannot be fulfilled elsewhere.
Most of these people live in the Boroughs of Spelthorne/Runnymede and the surrounding area.
Please go to https://midasplus.org.uk/our-case-studies/ to see how we have helped. More often than not MidasPlus is seen as their ‘last resort’.
If you know somebody that needs our help, please get in touch.
To raise funds we have run golf days, quizes, casino and race nights, dinners, done bucket collections and lots of raffles and are probably best known for organising and running the duck races at Staines-upon-Thames Day. It’s been very tough raising money during the Covid pandemic so we rely on grants and video events that we have run.
