The Winton Players have recently nominated The Oaks to receive a donation of £500! The children have also been invited to attend a special performance of Dick Whittington later this year. Thank you!
We wrote to The Petersfield Round Table just to ask, very politely..!... whether they might be kind enough to consider donating a little money to The Oaks Playscheme this year! What an enormous surprise when the Chairman came back to let us know we would receive £1500!! An amazing donation which we will thoroughly enjoy asking the children to work out what to use it for! Thank you! https://petersfield.roundtable.co.uk/
The Oaks Playscheme would like to thank Gill Turner Tucker Solicitors for their extremely kind donation of £2000. This makes such a huge difference to The Oaks and enables us to provide the children with some really special activities. Thank you!
The Petersfield Lodge of Friendship no. 928 kindly donated £250 to The Oaks Playscheme.
We are very grateful to The Stroud Evening WI and Carol Singers for their very kind donation of £230 to The Oaks Playscheme. http://hampshirewi.org.uk/
The Oaks Playscheme would like to say a HUGE thank you to Kerry at Booface Photography. Kerry was kind enough to take some beautiful photos of our children at The Oaks Playscheme for us to use in our new website. We are thrilled with them! http://www.booface.co.uk/
We were very fortunate to receive a gift from a friend who wishes to remain anonymous. He very generously donated £1000 for us to put towards purchasing our mobile hoist. This has made a huge difference to our staff and children who need the physical help and need to be lifted onto the changing table.
Every year we ask the children what they would like to spend some of our fundraised money on! We get all sorts of requests but most recently the children enjoyed looking through a catalogue of toys to replace our broken items! They also chose some lovely new sensory equipment.
One of our favourite ways to spend fundraised money is to book visitors that all our children will enjoy. This year we have chosen to spend the Stroud Evening WI Carol Singer’s donation on some visits from our musical therapist Christina Lydon. Christina works wonders with the children and everyone really enjoys engaging in such a stimulating activity.
The donation from the East Hampshire Conservative Association will be used to book a visit from the Theatre Company ‘Simply Smiley Productions’. Shannon has been visiting us for a few years and provides an exciting production where all our children are encouraged to join in. She nevers fails to bring a lot of smiles and laughter to our group and it is wonderful to see our most disabled children enjoying her interactions.
We were so excited to be invited to the Salvation Army's Christmas Carol service where the congregation donated an incredible £250. We were then invited back to receive another £101 which had been collected at the children's club. It makes such a difference to receive support from other local groups in this way and the money will go a long way to paying for some of our specialist activities during 2019.
The Stroud Evening WI also donated £100 this Christmas - thank you!
Petersfield Round Table has been such a great support to us now for many years and sent us a cheque for £750. A huge thank you...
