About

Beaudesert Park is proud to be fundraising for The Organisation for Social Change, Awareness and Responsibility (OSCAR), a not-for-profit organisation, which provides football coaching and education to underprivileged boys and girls, who are in education in Mumbai and across India. OSCAR offers a unique programme that not only teaches sport to children and youth, but also helps them to understand the value of education and so provides them with an alternative to life on the streets. 

The idea to bring an OSCAR football team to the UK in October 2017 was met with enthusiasm from the Mumbai slums and four other UK schools. The money raised will fund the tour and crucially an ongoing educational programme, ensuring that hundreds of children benefit. The tour will fly fifteen children from Mumbai to the UK for a mix of sport and education. The tour will educate and enrich the children, who will return to Mumbai with experience and knowledge to pass on to their friends and siblings and prove that an education really does pay off.

Event details

Mumbai to Minchinhampton Football Dribble

Beaudesert will be raising money during the summer term to support the OSCAR Foundation Football Tour. The main way that we intend to do this is by organising and taking part in a sponsored football dribble. It is 4,543 miles from Mumbai to Minchinhampton, and we, as a school community, from the Nursery through to the prep school, to the staff and hopefully our parents, are going to try to match that distance by dribbling footballs, in the first eight
days of the summer term.
We want to raise money, not just for the tour, but for the wider work of the OSCAR foundation.
Please listen to the short message from Ashok Rathod, founder of the OSCAR foundation on the video link on this page.

This is a collaborative effort by the Beaudesert school community and if you can sponsor the football dribble and encourage others to do the same, we will be able to see the OSCAR foundation flourish for many years to come.
 
Many thanks for your support.
