Gift a Book Project
“A Story to Tell” has been written to inspire, to encourage and to glorify God for all that He has done at The Oakes.
Our first print run is due to arrive at the end of July. Printing costs were covered by generous donations given specifically for this purpose.
Although the book will be available to purchase from 10ofThose (for £9.99 plus postage), many copies will be given as thank you gifts to our supporters and user groups.
We are hoping that readers will enjoy the book, and then gift more copies to family and friends to enable the story of The Oakes to be shared across the UK and beyond, to show how amazing God is and to encourage others to set up similar centres.
More copies can be collected from The Oakes, or ordered through 10ofThose.
We would really like to raise enough funds to enable a second print run. If you would like to contribute towards the printing and distribution of more copies, please click on the button below. If you’d like to give another way, please communicate with us that you would like your gift to go to this purpose.
21st Birthday Appeal
Thank you! We made it!!
Our target was to get 210 gifts of £21 by our 21st birthday on 1st July. At our monthly prayer meeting which was at 8pm on Thursday 1st, we were 15 short, so we asked everyone to pray for the last few we needed. By midnight we had received exactly 210!
This funding will enable us to add exciting new visuals across the house and grounds which aim to point campers to the gospel and encourage them in their faith.
Thank you so much to everyone for your Birthday gifts!
Some parents / carers are not able to afford the full camp fees. Your gift will provide a subsidised camp place. We desperately don’t want any child to miss out on an Oakes camps due to lack of funds.
It costs around £2,400 per year (£200 per month) to provide accommodation and training for each Impact Team member. Some young adults are not able to contribute the total cost. Your gift will help to cover the shortfall and help these team members to really grow in their faith and be trained up as the next generation of Christian leaders.
The building and grounds need regular maintenance and we are also constantly seeking to upgrade and improve our facilities and activities. Your gift will help enable us to do this. This is all about being able to operate absolutely fantastic camps, and great facilities are a key part in enabling us to do this.
