Eli’s story

OFFLINE DONATIONS: £80 + £20 Gift Aid

In the past few years, the growing number of homeless people you see living on the streets of London is shocking.

Eli has been affected by this, and desperately wanted to do something to help.

He got in touch with a charity called FEAST WITH US (https://www.feastwithus.org.uk/who collect surplus food from North London retailers and take it to community kitchens, and cook 3-course meals for vulnerable adults and people suffering food poverty on a weekly basis.

Not only are the meals delicious and nutritious, they are made from ‘waste’ foods that would otherwise be thrown away.

Volunteers and vulnerable adults are encouraged to cook, dine and socialise together as equals, it’s just an amazing charity!

Using his creative skills, Eli volunteers his time to do their graphic design work which includes a wide range of their communication materials.

In July 2019, for his Bar-Mitzvah year, Eli will be climbing Mount Snowdon in an effort to raise money for FEAST WITH US.

It would mean the world to Eli if you would consider sponsoring him, all the money raised will be going to this very worthwhile cause.

Thank you in advance,

Eli x


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

Feast With Us

FEAST With Us was established in June 2015, as a community project, and subsequently became a registered CIO in May 2017. Food poverty is a primary cause of ill-health and social isolation amongst vulnerable and homeless adults and, simultaneously, food waste is a growing cause for concern both in the UK and globally. At FEAST! we aim to address these social issues through preventing malnutrition, promoting sustainable eating habits, and encouraging community cohesion.


Each week, surplus food that would have otherwise been thrown out, is collected from local supermarkets and used to cook a community meal with the residents of the hostels we work with. Food is prepared and eaten together, as a community, with beneficiaries and volunteers side-by-side.


Currently, FEAST! operates out of two hostels; Conway House - a 60 bed hostel for homeless males - and Bethany House - a 90 bed hostel for homeless females. In time, we would like to extend our services to reach more beneficiaries and provide more volunteering opportunities in and around London.


You can find out more about the work we do, and how you can get involved, on our website: http://feastwithus.org.uk

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!
