Sue’s story

I have been working as a volunteer with Carers in Bedfordshire (CIB) for 2 years. Everyone at CIB are dedicated, enthusiastic and thoroughly professional and they do an amazing job with very little funding. I would love to raise some funds for them so that they can continue their vital services.


Some Background

CIB are a charity based entirely in Bedfordshire they support unpaid carers of all ages, backgrounds and caring situations. They have been in operation since the year 2004 and now have over 8,000 carers registered, 1,000 of those registered are under the age of 18.


CIB provides holistic support to carers and offer a range of activities and groups to help maintain and/or improve carers’ health and wellbeing. The charity enables carers of all ages to meet others in a similar position, attend training courses, relaxation therapy and counselling. These services provide crucial enhancements to mental, physical and emotional wellbeing through the promotion of social interaction with groups of peers that can share their experiences and feel like a part of a community rather than the isolation that is inherently present in the life of an unpaid carer.


Thank you for your support



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!
