Helping Local People in Crisis
Braintree Area Foodbank began feeding those in needs in April 2012. Since then we have fed over 10,000 adults and children and unfortunately these numbers are only set to rise.
Working in conjunction with local agencies the Foodbank users are those in society who face hardships caused by short term employment contracts, unemployment and benefit issues and those whose wage is not enough to feed themselves and their families. These groups are the most vulnerable within today’s society which is why our work is so vital.
We have centres based in Halstead, Witham and two in Braintree. These are manned by a fantastic group of volunteers who offer a warm welcome, a smile and a cup of tea to those who are in need but without your donations we will not be able to provide this help.
If you'd like to run, swim, bake (or do anything else to raise some money), click the button below to get started. It's quick and easy to register and by doing so here at Wonderful.org, you can be sure that every penny raised will reach Braintree Area Foodbank Ltd..
The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
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!
