Welcome to MidasPlus, the registered charity dedicated to helping the disadvantaged in Middlesex, Surrey and surrounding areas.

Please read the "How you can support us" page. We really need some help even if just for a few hours a month - we cannot continue to do this without you.

MidasPlus raises and distributes funds to community groups and individuals who have nowhere else to turn. Since it was first established in 2005 by volunteers, Ray Blowers, Felicity Wylie and Mike Wylie, MidasPlus has distributed more than£100,000 to worthwhile causes.

These have included:

  • 5 fully powered wheelchairs to individuals (Sharon Maloney pictured in her wheelchair)
  • A shower bed for the Lindon Bennett School for children with severe, profound and multiple learning difficulties as well as severe physical disabilities
  • A specially designed bicycle for a boy with cerebral palsy
  • New carpet for a single mother with twins
  • A new bath and toilet for an elderly man living independently
  • Fencing for a farm near Heathrow who give riding lessons for the disabled
  • 2 new mobility scooters for Staines Shopmobility
  • Making a garden safe for a young girl with severe Down's Syndrome and hyper-activity
  • A donation towards an annual holiday for 50 adults with severe disabilities & special needs
  • Funding of a new shower room for the White Lodge Centre

Read more about these gifts and how to apply for funding in the Who We Support section.

MidasPlus evolved in two ways. From King Midas who was said to be able to turn all that he touched into gold and the area that we cover South Middlesex and North Surrey plus surrounding areas (West Berkshire). The map to the right gives a good perspective of the area in which we operate.

MidasPlus raises most of its funds through local fundraising events and activities. These have included persuading local restaurants and hotels to hold dinners and karaoke evenings, Elvis nights, an annual Valentine Ball, RAF concerts, Golf Days, bucket collections and duck races.
