Team Cliff’s story

For almost 30 years, the staff and students of Gravesend Grammar School have undertaken an annual Sponsored Walk of approximately 13 miles around the Kent countryside to support charities chosen by the School and particular school needs.


Half the money raised each year goes to the school’s own charity “GGS School Development Fund” with the remainder divided between two charities chosen by the students - which this year will be Scope and Choices. Scope is the disability equality charity in England and Wales which campaigns for equality for disabled people and Choices is a charity working to help eradicate domestic abuse.


Other charities that have benefitted in recent years have included Khalsa Aid, Porchlight, KASBAH, MIND, UNICEF, RNLI Gravesend, Crohns and Colitis, Teenage Cancer Trust, Ellenor Lions Hospice and Prostate Cancer UK.


The GGS School Development Fund has been used for many things, most recently in May 2018 to develop the school’s Cadet Force parade ground and picnic area. It was also used to fund the initial planning and engineering costs of the Sanderson Sports Centre in 2009.

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!
