The donation was made on behalf of their sister, Rosalind Fuller, pictured below. Ros sadly passed away last year but was always clear that she wanted to help disadvantaged young people in the UK as part of her legacy.
The Fuller family have kindly shared Rosalind’s story with us and it makes for inspirational reading: Having been a challenging youth, Rosalind’s life was transformed when she was given the opportunity to join the Winston Churchill sailing boat at 16. She discovered a new world, met inspirational people and broadened her horizons. Ros went on to have a very successful career, which took her to many countries around the world but she never forgot that without that one positive, life changing opportunity, things could have been very different.
Ros was passionate about giving young people opportunities to see a different world and explore their own potential. She was also an avid skier who absolutely loved the mountains and the freedom that skiing provides.
Snow-Camp combines Rosalind’s desire to help young people with her passion for skiing and the Fuller family know that their donation would have made her very happy.
Snow-Camp Founder, Dan Charlish said: “We are so grateful to the Fuller family for sharing the moving and inspirational story behind this donation. We are honoured to be a part of Rosalind’s wish to help disadvantaged young people.”
The donation will have a massive impact on the lives of many young people across the UK, enabling those who would not otherwise have access to skiing and snowboarding, to get involved for the first time this summer.
Thank you so much to Ros, Nicky and Paul Fuller.
