The #Willdoes charity is dedicated to the memory of William Paddy, a sporty, charismatic child with a cheeky smile who grew up near Swanage, Dorset, and enjoyed horse riding, snowboarding, rugby and tennis. Sadly his life ended early at the age of 14, but his energy lives on through those who knew him and in his charity, #Willdoes. Will's mother, Les, set up the charity to help young people who may be finding life tough, struggling to cope with daily life.
Their mission is to promote any charitable purpose (including the promotion of education, physical health, mental health and social inclusion) and contribute financially to charitable projects for the benefit of young people in Dorset and the surrounding areas.
They aim to introduce young people to sports and other activities to help them connect and engage socially, rather than retreat to more insular gaming and social media pastimes and to develop coping mechanisms to help manage anxiety and emotions, increase self-awareness, developing trust and relationships.
This coming year, we will be hosting a range of events and challenges to raise money for #Willdoes, please check this page for updates throughout the year!
