Following our Christmas Day Marathons on behalf of The Teenage Cancer Trust and Dementia UK, Ultra Marathons of behalf of Martin house Hospice and Derain House Children’s Hospice we have covered some miles and that’s just Charlie!!
We have decided to develop the charity arm of The Great British Clothing Company into The Courage Over Fear Foundation
Solo Christmas Day Marathon For Dementia U.K
With our supporters and Volunteers we have also managed to help some of the homeless community living in Manchester. This has been through a number of ‘Help the Homeless’ days.
In addition we have supported the great work of Barnabus Christian Homeless Charity with donations of food and over 100 pairs of our very own GB trainers.

We also donate kit towards The Blackley Lions junior football club.

2020 was a weird and wonderful year for most of us. One positive we can take from it is the formation of our ‘Courage Over Fear Foundation’ (CoFF) in memory of Joan Charlesworth.
This has given us the opportunity to have a more focused approach with our community support, and allows our volunteers the chance to get more involved with causes that matter to them the most.
We currently have 3 Volunteer Representatives working with us.

Our volunteers have chosen to support three food banks:
Middleton Central Foodbank - Manchester
Elland Foodbank - Halifax
Vulnerable Citizen Support - Leeds
We are also exploring the opportunity of getting new clothing items to individuals and families most in need. We will provide an update for this as we develop our networks with existing charity and third sector agencies.
