The Master’s Charity Fundraiser

On Saturday 9 September 2017, our Master Fueller and her team will join the Thames Bridge Trek, covering 25 kilometres over 16 bridges from Putney Bridge to Tower Bridge.

The route starts in Fulham and follows the Thames paths zig-zagging along the north and south banks, crossing 16 of London’s historic bridges, en route to the finish line in Southwark.

Please support and make the foot blisters worth it! Other donations of plasters, ligament rub, waterproof clothing, energy bars, water and motivational DVD’s are NOT needed as she has plenty, already.

Please donate generously to help her complete this event. Remember she is raising funds for the Fuellers Charitable Trust Fund (FCTF) to be used in support of our well-deserved charities.

We welcome your donations.

Platanos College (formerly known as Stockwell Park School)

Platanos Minibus

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.

Real Action

real-action-logo1

This charity was established in the late 1990’s in a community in the London area suffering a considerable amount of illiteracy and crime. It was set up in the late 1990’s and is a community-led educational charity offering, both adult and child fast track literacy and English language classes. Funds raised allow Real Action to engage and train volunteers and teachers to run classes during school holidays and Saturdays during term time to improve reading literacy. These classes are known as ‘Butterfly Reading Courses’.   30 hours of Butterfly teaching produces an average improvement of 12-14 months in reading age. Today these classes are expanding around London and around the Country. The Fuellers are proud to be supporting such a worthwhile cause.
