Known for short as the London Churches Refugee Fund (LCRF), we support frontline charities (such as drop-ins and advice centres) who work with destitute refugees and asylum seekers in London, by raising money and making small grants to them. Typically those grants are then used to provide bus passes, travel and phone cards, nappies and sanitary items to vulnerable people living in desperate conditions. Some also support language teaching and other educational work. All our work is done voluntarily by the Trustees, we have virtually no overhead costs so every penny donated will go to those most in need.

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!
