The Lord's Taverners founded in 1950 is the UK's leading youth cricket and disability sports charity whose objective is to give disadvantaged and disabled young people a sporting chance.
We envisage a future where all young people, irrespective of background and ability, have the everyday opportunity to play sport and enjoy physical activities to the benefit of their self-esteem, health, education and future socio-economic potential.
Our mission is to enhance the lives of disadvantaged and disabled young people through sport and recreation. Our programmes support some of the most marginalised and at risk young people in the UK.
We create a range of opportunities for young people from deprived areas and those with disabilities to engage in sport and recreational activities in their local communities.
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 The Lords Taverners.
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!
