Michelle’s story

Hi everyone,


On Friday 22nd November I will be taking part in the Sleep Out 2019 - A night under the stars! along with my friend Maxine.

This involves sleeping outside at Chelmsford Cathedral from 7.30pm - 7.30am to help raise money for the homeless charity CHESS Homeless.


I expect it's going to be very cold, and luckily I will only be doing this for one night, as for some this is a reality all of the time that they do not have a roof over their heads, food, etc.


I would love to raise as much as possible, so if you could spare anything I would be very grateful.


Thank you,

Michelle x



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!
