Who We Are

Since we were founded in 2016 by Jo'An, Spread Ur Wings Foundation aims to become an integral part in the heart of the Thornton Heath community. We also aim to provide a safe space for youth to develop and grow during holidays, as well as offering trips and days out to promote a more proactive lifestyle. Subscription for the week comes at £3 per day. We are a purely non profit organisation, so any donation will go to the maintenance and upholding of the foundation.
