About The Whiston Initiative in Cultural Heritage

Thanks for looking at our Page


Thanks for taking the time to visit our Donate page.

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.Also can we ask if your a UK tax payer can you tick the box as the group will recive 25p in every £1.00 you donate.

What makes us wonderful?

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!
