Established in 2006, Always With A Smile has grown into one of the most inspiring and successful non-profit goodwill movements in the UK with its totally unique philosophy and three key aims      first, to raise money and awareness for charities and good causes      secondly, to inspire people to do something that they had never before considered      and finally, and most importantly, to make the world a happier place by putting a smile on the face of as many people as possible. "The foundation is organic in nature, and as an organisation it can be involved in almost anything as long as just one of the three principle aims is achieved. As its founder, I personally have taken part in well over 330 different events. I am a three-time winner of the International Birdman (where contestants build flying machines and fly from Worthing Pier), a two-time World Gravy Wrestling Champion and a former World Clog Cobbing Champion. I am the official target at the World Egg Throwing Championships, the unofficial controller of the World Pillow Fight Day carnage and a winner of the Jeremy Clarkson Award at the Pantomime Horse Grand National. I am an ambassador for some of the biggest events in the UK, including Tough Guy, the Maldon Mud Run, the Color Run and the Spartan Race, and I have a special relationship with events such as the Liverpool Santa Dash, the World Coal Carrying Championships and the Tetbury Woolsack Races, to name but a few. My work in support of good causes has led to significant recognition, most notably in 2013 when I was named, first in the Guinness Book of World Records, and then later that year in the Independent on Sunday's Happy List - a list of 100 people who, without thought of personal gain, give back and help others, rather than themselves. As the founder of Always With A Smile, as well as writing for a number of publications, I engage as a motivational speaker, both in the UK and abroad, with people of all ages and from all backgrounds, from school children through to commercial businesses. I've been utilised as an event host, as well as compering fundraising events for some of the UK's top sportsmen and women, and I've made guest appearances on countless TV shows from Paul O'Grady to This Morning, to Britain's Got Talent. The reach of the foundation is so wide that there is literally no limit, nor boundary, to what the foundation can do or be a part of, and this is echoed by those people across the UK who have become 'Smilers' by supporting Always With A Smile in its endeavours. After reading this, if your company or business would like to get behind Always With A Smile, then please get in contact with the foundation, as there are many ways in which you can sponsor Always With A Smile. Honestly, making the world a happier place has never been so much fun!" Contact: Joel Hicks. Address: AWAS-HQ, Parklands Farm, Lutterworth Road, Burbage, Hinckley, Leicestershire LE10 3AH.

Major Phil Packer sustained a spinal cord injury in Iraq in February 2008 and since then continues to inspire millions. His focus is supporting Young People who face Adversity. He has made this his business. As he began to cope with the situation he found himself in, to regain self-confidence, self-esteem, self-belief and feel to empowered to make choices in life, Phil decided to embark upon numerous physical challenges to raise funds for charity, raise positive awareness and enthuse others. His decisions pulled him through the dark times and he started to overcome the adversity faced with physical limitations and this improved his mental well-being. His three main challenges in 2009 were completed within six months. He rowed the English Channel with Al Humphreys on 14th February, just after a year of being injured and he walked the London Marathon over fourteen days on crutches, with support from his great friend, Martyn Bird. Phil captivated the nation throughout his two-week ordeal. He then flew out to the USA and hauled himself up El Capitan with a support team of some of the country’s best climbers, including Andy Kirkpatrick; he completed over 4,250 pull-ups and slept on the side of the mountain for three days before reaching the summit. Phil raised in excess of £1.3 million for charity in 2009. His efforts inspired millions and gained national recognition, including the Athlete of the Year Badge from the Scout Association, Fundraiser of the Year at the Pride of Britain Awards and the Helen Rollason Award at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year. The Armed Forces also recognised his efforts prior to his retirement in March 2010 and he was awarded the MBE in The Queen’s Birthday Honours List. In 2010, Phil stepped up to the mark again and in addition to supporting the wounded, he turned his attention and main focus to supporting Young People who face Adversity. To continue his physical challenges and to inspire young people, he climbed the 3 Peaks in 72 hours for Sport Relief with BBC presenter, Kate Silverton. He was supported again by Al Humphreys, Andy Kirkpatrick and Martyn Bird and was joined on Mount Snowdon by Sir Steve Redgrave and Sir Clive Woodward. This became the feature for the BBC Inside Sport documentary A Major Mountain to Climb that followed his journey. He then completed his biggest challenge: the opportunity to bring charities together and raise awareness of numerous disabilities, deprivation and medical conditions. On the 25th/26th April 2010, Phil smashed his fourteen day London Marathon time and completed the Virgin London Marathon in 26 hours for 26 charities, walking each mile with a Young Person from each of the charities. The greater awareness of the various charities' work and the inspiration Phil gave to the Young People and the public was immense and immeasurable. Contact: Major Phil Packer.

Richard Walsh has been a rowing coach for thirty years. He has coached Scottish, British, Commonwealth Games and World Champion rowers. He was Rowing Team manager for the Scottish Commonwealth Games team. He is now coaching an individual rower who needs sponsorship to cover the costs of his boat, oars and transport. "This individual has the potential to go to World and Olympic level based on my assessments so far. The athlete is currently using borrowed equipment which is of the wrong size and age. If his equipment could be funded then it would be used by this individual and any other subsequent athletes I coach. Advertising could be offered by using the boat cover to carry logos, company names, etc. The new boat and oars will cost around £7,000". Contact: Richard Walsh.
