Platanos College (formerly known as Stockwell Park School)




We are delighted to be able to see how our strong links with the Platanos College are making such a difference. With the help of your continued donations we have been able to purchase a brand new minibus for the College.

The Fuellers over a number of years have built up a good working relationship with this inner city London school. The school has shown steady improvements in academic success as well as several extra-curricular programmes, which encourages students to aim for success in their careers once they leave the College. The Fuellers Charitable Trust has been able to give financial support for these extra-curricular programmes which include, Army Cadet Force, St. John’s Ambulance Cadets, Girl Guides and Scouts. These Cadet groups will now be able to be transported to various events in this minibus.  With your continued support we are able to go on and assist in the development of the students at this thriving Inner City London School.

The Air Ambulance Service



Air Ambulance helicopters operate around the country and attend a wide range of medical emergencies. The dedicated pilots, paramedics and doctors are able to reach the incidents speedily, access the situation and fly the patient to the most appropriate hospital for their required treatment. They have now introduced the first and only dedicated helicopter emergency transfer service for seriously ill children and babies, flying them from one hospital to a specialist unit together with their clinicians. In the past this journey had to be made by land meaning seriously ill youngsters suffering long and arduous journeys.

Over the past few years this annual light hearted event involves Livery Masters including the Fuellers’ Master to be thrown into jail at the Tower of London for a few hours.
