Charity Partner 2023

The Oaks raises monies for charities throughout the year, be it our craft & farmers market, a coffee morning, pub quiz or raffle, and this year we have chosen a charity partner for the first time. All of the Oaks fundraising activities in 2023 will go to St Barnabas, so watch this space for ways to get involved.

St Barnabas Hospice is a local independent charity who supports more than 10,500 people across Lincolnshire with a life-limiting or terminal illness each year. They deliver free, high-quality, compassionate end-of-life care and support to patients, their families and carers. They aim to enable them to live as fully as they are able for however many days, weeks or months they have left.

They are reliant on the financial support the community provides, to be there for more patients, their families and carers, every day of the year.

If you wish to support the Oaks raise as much money as they can for this incredible charity, then please…
