Fundraising Run for FSC Kids Fund

Education team members Angela, Kirsty and Iain are raising much needed funds for the FSC Kids Fund by running 10K on 11th June at Coed Llandegla. They hope to raise £540 to give 30 young people the opportunity to visit FSC Preston Montford for a transformative learning experience. 

FSC Kids Fund provides financial support for groups of disadvantaged young people who would like to visit one of our centres for an FSC experience. Past Kids Fund beneficiaries are young people in foster care, those who are not in mainstream education, young people who are living a women’s refuge and children from primary schools who have little or no access to green space let alone the countryside.

15 kids from Westminster School came on a 4 night residential course at FSC Preston Montford in 2016 and had an inspiring time, especially mammal trapping, pictured. Westminster School said “The pupils have been truly inspired from the amazing experience. Our plans for the near future include: developing an outdoor learning classroom; having a ‘bird box’ enterprise scheme; conservation work at the local nature reserve and more visits to Preston Montford.’ 

Angela said “how rewarding it was to see the young people develop in their confidence and team working skills and to leave enthused to improve their school environment back at Westminster. It would be great to offer the same experience to more.”
