Football Sponsorship

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

The Fiona Foundation logo will be proudly worn on the St Johns Parish under 10 football team shirts from September. We are really grateful to those who have helped to fund this without seeking any recognition for themselves and for helping us to keep up the profile of the Foundation.

Christmas Party

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

Put the date in the diary folks; 30 November is the proposed date for our annual Christmas bash with the auction, raffle, kids disco and all the other usual trimmings.

Phrase books for the Spanish Exchange

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

This year’s exchange trip to Nigran in March was the best attended yet; the project goes from strength to strength. The Fiona Foundation is currently supporting the project by providing all the children involved with phrase books for current and future use and as a lasting momento of their involvment. Thank you for helping in raising the funds to allow us to do this.

Manley Mere is here again

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

We are not far away now from the summer party at Manley Mere on 6 July. Record numbers are booked in. It is turning into a proper festival; Mr. Husselbee no doubt the main fixture in the dance tent. There is much excitement amongst the younger folk for the traditional afternoon of muddy glory but this year’s kayak contest seems to be getting the entire toupee of competitive dads’ talking the talk from a long way off. If anyone wants more information about joining us, camping or the event generally then please contact us by e mail.

Nick’s London Marathon

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

We are really grateful to Nick. Not only is he one of our trustees but he has also been our greatest fund raiser so far this year. He completed the London marathon in 3 hours 18 minutes and raised around £2,500 for the Foundation whilst doing so. Thanks Nick for all your help.
