FCA Scotland were delighted to have seven of our young people come along to a participation event. After having delicious pizzas delivered for dinner, our young people were happy to help us prepare a contribution for the local food bank. These items have been collected by young people, foster carers and staff over the last few months. We also raised £126.00 from our prize raffle at our recent 20th anniversary celebration and spent this money on further supplies to be included within this donation.
We then had a good discussion with the young people about future event planning for next year, as well as hearing some of their ideas for future fundraising / charity opportunities including bake sales, charity walks and Easter Egg campaigns. These will be discussed further at our next participation event.
FCA Scotland would like to say a huge thank you to our young people, foster carers and staff for their generous donations enabling us to make this contribution to the food bank, and to our young people for helping us to prepare these supplies to be delivered.
