Fiona Oakes Foundation

Fiona Oakes Foundation
Founder: Fiona Oakes

Fiona’s mission is to show that her lifestyle choices with respect to her vegan diet are not restricting her performance in any way.
To do this Fiona participates in marathon and ultra-marathon events and also talks about her experiences at various festivals.

The financial strain of running the animal sanctuary is huge and this therefore makes the additional funding of an outreach program very challenging.

Neither Fiona or her partner Martin take anything from donations as income – they earn their “living” from other activities (Fiona is a retained Fire-fighter and Martin works for a Bank).

Donations to the Foundation go 100% towards the costs of participating in the events and the associated travel costs to and from the events.

Athletes at Fiona’s level travel to events with an “entourage” – they have coaches, trainers, medical staff and support people and importantly they nearly all do what they do for a living – which is fine of course, but this is NOT what Fiona is doing it for. Fiona travels to these events with her elderly Mother! and that’s all.

She HAS to have someone with her to be there for her at the end of a race and she often feels very out of place as she arrives at the elite start where all the athletes are being fussed by their coaches and dozens of support people and she is standing there with just her Mum !

You can help the Foundation promote the cruelty free cause either by making a lump sum donation or by taking out a standing order for a regular monthly donation (UK bank Accounts only).

We can accept a non sterling cheque, although the bank will typically charge a £15 fee to clear it.

Paypal is also available for those outside the UK and you can also send money by direct transfer if you bank online.
