Charities spring up for many reasons all over the world. Sometimes they have a specific cause, sometimes they are to help those who suffer from an illness, sometimes they are aimed at restoring a building or supporting a club.
The William Cross Foundation is a charity dedicated to providing a lasting long term legacy to an exceptional young man - our only son, William. Will died suddenly on 28 May 2016, aged 17, and our world came to a shuddering halt...
With the money raised, we will celebrate Will's life by enabling young people to fulfil their potential in music and politics.

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!
