Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust (YDMT) is a small charity doing big things to support the landscape, environment, communities and economy of the Yorkshire Dales and surrounding area. Since 1996 weve helped to deliver over 1,900 inspiring projects worth more than �27million. Our work evolves to meet the changing needs of this special landscape and the communities within it. Current projects include: Restoring rare wildflower hay meadows, home to hundreds of species of wildlife Providing education and training for local young people through life-changing apprenticeships Planting new broadleaf trees to create native woodlands Providing grant funding and support to a wide range of initiatives that benefit communities across the region Enabling disadvantaged groups from nearby urban areas to experience the health and well-being benefits of spending time in the countryside, often for the first time Access improvements, such as repairs to footpaths, stiles, dry stone walls and interpretation panels Enabling primary school children to learn about farming, food production, wildlife and the natural environment through farm visits We could not do any of this vital work without the support of people who love the Yorkshire Dales.

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 Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust.
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!
