W.I.C.H was set up thirteen years ago with the dream of rebuilding the old
hospital chapel in the grounds of Whiston Cemetery. It was not possible to save
the whole chapel building, but we managed a fair percentage, for example, the
stained glass windows which will be incorporated into the rebuild of the new
building with new and old materials. We have now started the work with the
footing already in place, and the steel work, but to do all this we must
raise a total of £135.000, to date we have raised £110.938.62 through sponsors and persistent
fundraising. We are strongly supported by VINCI Construction plc, who built the
new Whiston/St Helens Hospitals, so as you can see every penny helps. Thank you
once again for reading about us and our dream, to build the memorial building,
for everyone to come into and sit, reflect and remember their loved ones.

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!
