Who Are We?
The Friends of Wimbledon College (FoWC) is an active group of parents and friends who support Wimbledon College and its good work. All parents of students of Wimbledon College are automatically members of the FoWC. As friends we warmly invite and encourage you all to come and participate at our meetings and to join us in organising events that support the college community.
Our aim is twofold. Firstly we assist the school by performing duties such as providing refreshments at College events that include Drama Productions, Music Events, Prize Nights, the Christmas Carol Service, etc.
Secondly, we organise social events for the enjoyment of parents. These help to promote the ethos of the college and provide opportunities for parents to meet and get to know each other as part of the college community. If these events also raise some money, this is a bonus. Some events are organised to raise funds for specific college projects.
Without your support, FoWC would not be able to support the school in the many events.There are many ways that you can offer your support, for example, by coming to the events, buying raffle tickets, helping during the events, or donating any raffle prizes large or small.
