Emma’s story

Hi everyone, so i have signed up for some strictly fabulous fundraising for Self Help Africa and British Red Cross :) Over the next few weeks myself and Kyle (who i have roped into this with me and who is also fundraising separately) will be put through our paces by the lovely ladies at Ballroom Blitz NI and will perform on at the Dance for a Difference show on Saturday 1st December at the Whitla Hall - tickets are available for this priced at £10 - it's sure to be a good night and it's all for a good cause so why not come along! All donations made are much appreciated, thank you all in advance :) xxx

Our sectors of expertise include:

  • Food and nutrition security
  • Climate-smart agriculture

  • Rural organization development and
  • capacity building
  • Access to finance
  • Climate resilience

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!
