We feel it is important that the children are aware of giving to charity through the fun they have at FOP events and that they know which worthy causes they are supporting; each school house and the Pre-Prep, therefore, chooses a local charity for FOP to support each year.
Our current charities are as follows:
Postbridge: Swindon Night Shelter
Motcombe: Oxford Animal Sanctuary
Melchet: Pennyhooks Farm Trust
Farnborough: ‘Threshold’ in Swindon
Pre-Prep: Oak and Furrows Wildlife Rescue Centre
In addition to our charities, we support a young student, Rachida, through World Vision, adopt four animals at Cotswold Wildlife Park, and have been able to provide Bishopstone Primary School (with whom we have a strong link) with a playground canopy.
As a committee, they have a lot of fun and are always looking for volunteers to help at events. If you think you would be interested in helping us, please speak to Nicola Bailey or any member of FOP.
