1 In A Million

1 in a million

We are aiming for a thousand, ten thousand, or a MILLION wonderful people to support our work! Will you be one of them?

The purpose of 1 In A Million is to create a network of donators, volunteers, fundraisers, and champions to support our work and help us help more women and their families across Derby and Derbyshire. The women we support are some of the most disadvantaged, vulnerable and isolated women in society. Many have no support networks, poor mental and physical health and have no way of improving their lives alone.

Would You:

  • Like to support an important cause that changes lives?
  • Want the opportunity to possibly develop your skills or be trained in new ones through voluntary work?
  • Like to be invited to join our fundraising events, galas and more as well as have the opportunity to organise your own events?
  • Use our logo if you are a business to highlight your Corporate Social Responsibility?
  • Like to be kept informed of our activities and achievements through a newsletter?
