Your Fundraising Efforts
We are so fortunate to have a fantastic community who fundraise, volunteer and donate. Below is some of the work that's been done to help keep people in Kent safe. A massive thank you to everyone who has helped.
International Women's Day
International Women’s Day on 8th March is an opportunity for us to celebrate the brave women in our community who have had the courage to walk away from abuse into happier futures. This year it coincided with 100 years of women’s suffrage and we would like to thank South Thanet Conservative Association who donated the proceeds of their special event to Oasis, donating more than £1000 to our cause.
We would also like to thank Oasis volunteer Nicki Miles who hosted a fantastic International Women’s Day coffee morning at Cliff’s raising over £400.
Grosvenor Casino Quiz
We have now held two great quiz nights at Grosvenor Casinos with teams of eager masterminds answering questions from Quizmaster Glen Woodward shown here in a photograph with the Fundraising Team.
Each event raised more than £1,000. Thank you to everyone who came and enjoyed the evening. Huge thanks to Grosvenor Casino Thanet for hosting this fun charity quiz and to Barclays for helping with match funding.
