The Springboard TREK

for The Springboard Charity

£0.00 + £0.00 Gift Aid = £0.00
Donated to The Springboard TREK’s £100000.00 Goal

From 21st March - 1st April 2020, a group of Trekkers will be going out of their comfort zone and travelling all the way to Nicaragua to take part in a gruelling challenge, including 4 treacherous volcano-climbs and a transformative local community project. All of our Trekkers have individual fundraising targets they must reach in advance of the TREK next spring to be able to take part in the challenge. All funds raised for the Springboard TREK will allow our UK beneficiaries to complete employability programmes, equipping them with skills, confidence and work experience and allowing them to begin successful & rewarding careers in hospitality. Additionally, by helping the Trekkers to achieve their fundraising targets, your donations will help us to renovate a local school in the village of Rota, Nicaragua, installing a much-needed water system and an outdoor shelter area.

All funds raised will be passed to The Springboard Charity irrespective of whether our appeal target is reached, not reached or exceeded. If funds are being raised for a specific purpose and, for whatever reason, this purpose is no longer valid, the funds will be transferred to the charity for general use.

The charity

Springboard helps people of all ages and backgrounds to increase their career prospects within hospitality, leisure and tourism, working to reduce unemployment and poverty across the UK. Our education programmes provide professional skills and tailored aftercare to people with barriers to employment or those in education. We also provide practical work experience placements and careers guidance which will ultimately lead to sustainable employment. With our employer partners, we’re able to find and develop new talent while promoting the sector as a viable and rewarding career path through strategic partnerships with government and industries bodies as well as our alumni network.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
