We are looking for support in our quest to conquer the London Marathon 2016. To prepare we will be completing a gruelling training programme together - taking us from novice to 26-mile-crazy runners. We are nervous but are really committed to supporting our Charity - iolanthe Midwifery Trust. We are passionate about improving maternity care for mothers and babies and Iolanthe works to do that.
As part of our training we will be completing:
- a 26 hour, non-stop relay run
- 5K a day throughout January 2016
- 3 Peak Challenge
Look out for our updates and photos of our training journey. We will value your encouragement.

The Iolanthe Midwifery Trust is a national charity whose aim is to enhance the wellbeing of mothers, their babies and families by assisting the education and professional development of midwives in the UK. The name ‘Iolanthe’ comes from the origin of the finances used to set up the Trust in 1983 from the sale of Iolanthe House in South Kensington, London, previously the home of W.S. Gilbert of ‘Gilbert and Sullivan’ fame. The Trust gives a range of grants and awards, with the best known being annual awards for qualified midwives to enhance their professional development through such activities as further education, travel and attendance at conferences; and support for student midwives to experience additional educational opportunities or undertake elective placements. In addition there are larger awards given from time to time to promote research and reward best practice within the field of midwifery and the maternity services. Since 1983, the Trust has supported hundreds of midwives and students, all of whom have expressed their appreciation at being selected by a unique charity run by midwives for midwives. The distinction of gaining an award has often given midwives a boost to morale and confidence that has helped them take their career forward and make a real difference to care for mothers and babies.

Is there any cost to the challenger or to the cause?
No, GoRaise is completely free to use for challengers and causes. The only cost is to the retailer
Why do the retailers make a donation?
When you visit a retailer or service through goraise.co.uk they offer a donation as a thank you for your custom. Our partner retailers like to help, but it's also a way of attracting customers, so they essentially put it down as a marketing cost.
Will we end up paying more for goods and services?
No, you are not charged anything extra. You buy directly from supplier websites accessed via GoRaise so you pay the same as anyone else. In fact – our users are able to take advantage of many exclusive offers and promotions so you will often find a better deal with suppliers through GoRaise. If you have a preferred supplier not currently listed on GoRaise.co.uk, please let us know and we will help them sign up.
Sounds too good to be true – is there a catch?
There’s no catch, and to confirm, it won't cost you a penny!! In fact, there’s £millions worth of retailer commission available every year to fund good causes across the UK. Amazingly, many causes are still unaware of this easy, free way to generate funds through everyday online shopping.
How much of the donation does GoRaise take?
We don’t take a penny of the amount displayed. For all retailers we show a donation rate (% or £), which represents the full amount you are raising for your cause. For clarity, GoRaise is a commercial organisation, and we receive an additional payment from the retailer above and beyond that shown on the site.
Which causes can we raise money for?
You can support any good cause, from small community groups, national charities or your own company foundations. Your favourite cause may already be registered. If it isn’t, it can be added very easily for free. GoRaise helps charities, sports clubs, company foundations, PTAs, community groups, churches, youth groups (Girl Guides, Scouts etc) and lots of other great causes.
