Charity Partners

We encourage all charities to get involved with the Reading Half Marathon and Green Park Challenge. Whether you are a local or national charity, being part of this event will give your charity fantastic exposure whilst encouraging our runners to raise thousands of pounds for your great cause.

Our objective is to transform the amount raised through these events for our Charity Partners. There are six levels of Charity Partnerships available, designed to suit all charities, big or small. If you are interested in being an official Charity Partner please email:

Proud to support & work with our 2024 charities below

Silver Partner

Sue Ryder supports people through the most difficult times of their lives. Whether that's a terminal illness, the loss of a loved one or neurological condition - we're there when it matters.

For over 65 years, our doctors, nurses and carers have given people the compassion and expert care they need to help them live the best life they possibly can. We take the time to understand what's important to people and give them the choice and control over their care. For some this may mean specialist care in one of our centres, whilst others might need support in their own home.


BRONZE Partner

Babies in Buscot Support (BIBS) help to give sick and premature newborns at the Royal Berkshire Hospital the best possible start in life.

A small charity, run by parents of former Buscot (neonatal ward) graduates - every penny raised helps save tiny lives and provide emotional support for families. We fund life-saving equipment, improve facilities and care for the families who follow in our footsteps.

You will receive a FREE running vest plus incredible support throughout your training, on race day & beyond.



We're a children-focused charity facilitating access to education for children in the Domboshowa and Mutare regions of Zimbabwe.

Our mission is to lift orphans and vulnerable children in Africa out of poverty. We provide support through projects focused on feeding, nutrition, and sanitation. We stop period poverty from forcing girls to miss school or experience discrimination. We also work towards empowering communities by giving them access to sustainable agricultural projects to live off.



Royal Berks Charity provides vital funds that enhance the care and experience of patients and staff at Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust.

It enables the funding of projects, equipment and endeavours that goes above and beyond what the NHS can provide.



Starting Point enables young people who face disadvantage to see transformation in their lives - we passionately believe every young person should have the chance of a brighter more hopeful future.  

We do this through mentoring, creating opportunities, and amplifying the voices of young people - empowering them to make and sustain lasting positive change in themselves and the Reading community.



We’re the Reading-based charity that uses sport and physical activity to improve the lives of people experiencing mental health problems.

Our award-winning programmes, delivered in partnership with the NHS, help aid recovery, promote mental wellbeing, improve physical health, combat social isolation and empower people in the UK to move their lives forward in a positive direction.
