Craig’s story



British wildlife is being wiped out. Over 50% of our biodiversity has been destroyed since the 1970s. Some 44 million individual birds have been lost and even once common species such as swift, starling and house sparrow are in free fall. Intensive agriculture and habitat destruction are the main cause and the carnage is being allowed to continue. The controversial badger cull is being expanded, foxhunters continue hunting with dogs and the shooting fraternity keeps on killing protected birds of prey. The latter being most prevalent in North Yorkshire. Fortunately, North Yorkshire also has a wildlife charity that is dedicated to saving lives...

Founded in 2009, Whitby Wildlife Sanctuary provides a rescue, rehabilitation and release service for the North East of England. It operates 24/7, 365 days a year, caring for over 3,000 sick, injured and orphaned animals and birds. It is run by 70 volunteers and includes many people with special needs. For this all to continue and to care for an increasing number of animals, the charity needs donations to pay for day to day running costs (feed, bedding, vets bills etc) and ultimately relocate to larger premises. If you want to help - then please sponsor me!

On September 10th, me and my faithful pooch Meg will set off on the West Highland Way from Loch Lomond to Ben Nevis. I will camp the entire 96-mile route and endeavour to climb Nevis on the last day. Thanks in advance for your support! ;-)

All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.

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!
