Friends of old Folkestone cemetery  FOFC is a community wide project started in early 2016 by elected FOFC committee of volunteers and supported by FOFC members who are all volunteers. We work in the cemetery most Saturdays between 10.30 and 1.30 weather permitting. With help from local business, traders and local organisations we can achieve so much more and this page will list the businesses, traders and other organisations that have been happy to support our work. Support can be provided in many ways: financial donations, tools and equipment, promotional opportunities, professional advice….even refreshments …all are very gratefully received and will help us work more effectively. If your organisation could support us in any way please do get in touch to discuss your ideas. HOW YOU CAN SUPPORT US
