Fundraising For Salisbury Hospice Charity
During the opening of our new Coombe Bissett Depot, we decided to rally together with our new and existing customers & hold a charity raffle. With the prizes on offer ranging from bottles of wine, a toy New Holland tractor and a STIHL Chainsaw there was a lot of interest for visitors over the two day opening events. With a lot of hard work from the Oakes team and the generosity of our customers, we managed to raise £530.00.
It was decided that the money should be donated locally to the Salisbury Hospice Charity. The hospice helps over 1000 patients and families who need care in their own homes or through non-residential and inpatient services at the hospice. Although some of the funding comes from the government the charity still needs to raise over £1.5 million a year to maintain the vital work they do.
With this in mind, Oakes Bros would like to thank everyone who donated to the charity raffle & supported such a well worthy cause.
