Since being able to give them my first big cheque I found out they are now able to open four days a week thanks to donations like these. I would like to say a huge thank you to every fantastic person that’s purchased something from FUC. Please check out the Wessex Cancer Trust link so you can see how far your help goes and what a huge difference donations make. FUC Clothing is my way of turning a negative into a positive.
