Foster carers hit for six at cricket game

Archived: Posted August 28, 2015

Our Western team showed a competitive streak recently when it hosted its own cricket match.

The group of foster carers, children and staff descended on a park in the middle of Bristol for a team building day with a truly British twist.

Dressed in cricket whites (well, white FCA t-shirts), the team certainly stood out on the field – and help raised awareness of fostering at the same time!

The event was a huge success and gave everyone the chance to get together to celebrate the British summertime ahead of the Ashes final test.

Claire Jones, FCA Marketing Coordinator, helped to organise the day. She said: “The cricket match went down a storm, the sun was shining and there were many laughs. We found out who was the most competitive (Wallis), who can’t catch (Julia) and who has lost far too much weight and nearly lost her trousers (Katie)!

The plan was for each member of staff to bring in a buffet item for lunch, so everyone contributed. In fact, we ended up with so much food we had enough lunch for the next four days!”

At FCA, we hold regular events, activities and competitions for our foster carers, their families and the children they look after. Find out more about the 24/7 support package we offer to all our foster carers in Bristol and Western England.
