We are a small local charity in Crawley, West Sussex, serving the homeless community. Our primary focus is street homeless/rough sleepers, closely followed by statutory homeless, non-statutory homeless and hidden homeless. We serve our guests a free hot meal four times a week and give them some of the essential items they need to get by. The service has grown to include clothing, bedding and wellbeing items and we regularly have paramedics attending to do health checks. Another incredibly important aspect is bringing them together, taking the time to talk to them and reducing the social isolation they endure. We give them respect and compassion, friendship and hope, no matter what their circumstances are or what problems they have, they are always welcomed at Giving Back Crawley.
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 Giving Back Crawley.
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!
