Our Charitable Activities

Fundraising

As a company, we support a variety of important causes, through fundraising events and charitable donations.

Activities are held throughout our network for national charity events such as Wear it Pink, Sport Relief and Children in Need. This is a great way of giving back to the community, whilst bringing employees together in a united cause.

For several years, we have entered teams in the Wolf Run, with participants tackling a 10K obstacle course, and the Dragon Boat Race, where rowers go head-to-head against other local companies.

At the start of 2016, we launched the FPS Action Pact – a 12-month campaign aimed at improving out teams’ health and wellbeing, at the same time as raising money for some fantastic causes. Look out for events throughout the year, including the Leaderboard Triathlon in July.
