Alex’s story

Hey gang, this is a late in the day shout-out, but I'm dragging already knackered legs to Brighton tomorrow to complete the z Brighton Marathon. Choices is due to open a new hostel for vulnerable young women, pregnant or with one child in May. They will typically be fleeing domestic abuse or other family breakdown. Your donations will go directly towards provision of bedding, clothing - including for their children, and other comforts at a time of dramatic upheaval. Anything odd money can spare would be hugely appreciated. Thank you.

Choices

Choices are a Kent-based domestic abuse charity providing support and advice to victims across Dartford, Gravesham, Maidstone and Medway.

We additionally run two hostels providing temporary accommodation to vulnerable young women.

We are a small and effective team of specialised staff and volunteers and your kind donations are crucial to maintaining the work we do.

We’re working towards a world where domestic abuse is fully understood as unacceptable, where all members of society feel safe in their own homes, and are able to enjoy healthy relationships free from violence.

Registered Charity Number: 1125773.

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!
