FCCHS is a registered charity (No. 1060218) which aims to support Chelsea Community Hospital School by providing extra funding for the Hospital School to offer an enriching experience for children and young people whilst they are in hospital, promote Chelsea Community Hospital School and encourage volunteers and supporters.

Funds raised by the charity:

- keeps the Hospital School open during the 12 weeks school holidays and provides a youth club in the evenings so children and young people can have access to stimulating activities all year round
- provides for art and drama therapy which help children to process difficult feelings associated with illness and hospital admission
- enables us to run our award-winning arts programme of art, poetry, music, pottery and photography
- allows us to continue our support for post-16 pupils who have often been in hospital for a prolonged period of time and require continual support and guidance even after statutory school age
- guarantees weekly swimming and horse-riding sessions
- enables enriching trips on our mini-buses and special events
- enables us to purchase essential ICT and sensory equipment
- provides funds for children at Collingham to go on an activity holiday during August

FCCHS raises funds for activities which are important to the development of the whole child with medical and/or mental health conditions but are not funded by the Department of Education. We are very grateful for the continuing support of everyone working with the FCCHS.

Members of FCCHS run a weekly stall at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital since it opened 20 years ago. We are also delighted that Helen, Melissa and Su joined this team and that they are able to put so much creativity and energy into persuading local shops and companies to donate gifts to raise money for the hospital school.

100+ Club
We want to raise regular income to support projects that help children at the Hospital School. The 100+ club is a lottery whereby members can buy one or more shares in the club annually and then have the chance of winning prizes, which will be awarded twice a year. We hope to sell at least 100 shares, thus having £1,000 in the pot, of which 30% will be awarded as prizes and 70% will go to the charity. Prize money will always be 30% of the total raised. The more shares we sell, the bigger the prizes and the more money we shall have to help children in the Hospital School.
