Our office staff recently ran their 15th, bi-annual, Charity Comedy night and the final figures are through. We raised £800 for our two good causes- Yewstock School Hydrotherapy Pool (a school for children with special needs close to our UK office) and the Hupenyu Hutsva Children’s Home in Harare, Zimbabwe. So far, these charity nights have raised about £15,000 for local and overseas good causes. The Hupenyu Hutsva Children’s Home is a regular project that Oasis supports. Once a year we take all the children out for a day trip, using our Expedition vehicles and crew, and end the day with a big party. Many of the children rarely leave the compound they live on, so this is a big event for them. Our last outing was in May 2014. We have asked the Home how they would like the money spent this time and school uniforms are a priority. Chris, our Director is going out to Zimbabwe in December this year and school uniform shopping, with the staff, is now on his list of things to do!
Our next Comedy Night is on 21st March 2015, at The Exchange, Sturminster Newton, Dorset. We have a great line-up of 4 acts plus a compere and tickets are just £12, with all profits going to our two good causes, which for this show will be The Sudanese Community Development Project in Cairo and Shillingstone Seniors’ Club. Tickets are available from the venue now! Tel: 01258 475137.
