We couldn't be happier for our friends over at Rule 5!

On Wednesday 7th November 2018, a great event took place at the Hilton Manchester Deansgate: the Chartered Institute for Public Relations (aka CIPR) held its annual PRide Awards for the North West. These awards recognise the outstanding work of PR agencies, with winners being selected by leading industry experts.

Once again, for the sixth year in a row, Rule 5 was rewarded for all the great work it has been doing for its clients over the past year, in fact gaining the most awards of the night, taking home three trophies!

And two of these were awarded to recognise the invaluable work which Rule 5 has been doing with the Wonderful Organisation. For all the help they have given us to spread the word about our fee-free fundraising platform, the CIPR honoured Rule 5 with Best Community Relations Campaign and Best Not-for-Profit Campaign.

We're delighted to see these efforts gain the accolades they merit, as we want as many people as possible to consider Wonderful for their fundraising efforts, and to gain clarity about the fees associated with some other fundraising platforms. Contrary to what many people think, not all fundraising websites work in the same way or process their donations in the same way, and it's always worth comparing your options. and having a look at how each platform is run - we provide information on how Wonderful works on our website.

Rule 5's spectacular public relations work has also helped us in our quest to spread the word about all the benefits for companies of setting aside a chunk of your budget to dedicate to CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility), something which we aren't alone in knowing is, aside from everything else, a wise business decision. And we firmly believe that the very best way that companies can invest their CSR budget is by becoming Wonderful Partners. We're so grateful to Rule 5 for contributing to the spread of what we think are absolutely vital nuggets of knowledge and insight.

Rob Brown, who is Rule 5's Managing Partner said: “Insight, thought, creativity and hard work from everyone in the agency goes into these campaigns. We are lucky also to work with great clients on engaging campaigns. The PRide Awards are really important to Rule 5 and it’s a joy to be able to celebrate with the team.” We, too, feel really lucky to be able to work alongside such an outstanding PR firm, and offer many congratulations and thanks to Rule 5!

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!
