Team Tumani Corrah Prize for Excellence’s story

Tumani's 70th birthday gives us all a wonderful opportunity to recognise his immense contributions as mentor and benefactor to many aspiring clinicians and scientists, particularly in The Gambia and West Africa. 

He has helped so many!  Please join us in raising at least £5,000 to establish a "Tumani Corrah Prize for Excellence" to be awarded to an AREF Fellow or Alumnus for outstanding achievement. The AREF Board will determine the scope of eligible achievements. They could, for example, include a major contribution by a Fellow to fundraising for AREF; an outstanding research publication catalysed by AREF support, or for establishing a sustainable mentoring scheme at their home research institution. The Award will be managed by the Africa Research Excellence Fund under the supervision of its Board. We aim to collect enough to award £1,000 each year for at least five years. 

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!
