Our OPERATION OASIS Project has been giving out food and essentials to people in need and crisis around the Bassetlaw area.

We're still collecting donations

On the 9th January 2022 we'd raised £721 with 9 supporters in 42 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

We started OPERATION OASIS at the start of the Covid crisis and we were able to raise over £130,000 over 18 months and deliver over 15,000 food boxes, essentials hampers and help so many individuals and families. For some it was a lifeline and a link to the outside world for a lonely isolated person. For others it was emergency food supplies given to people referred from the Job Centre, Social Services, the Citizen's Advice, Framework or other charities and local community groups. We were able to give not only food supplies, toiletries and essentials but also Christmas gifts to children from families in crisis and other items like duvets and pillows for young people moving into emergency accomodation. 

We also were able to reward some of the heroes of the covid period who had done amazing things in the pandemic to help keep everyone safe and well. 

What we have found is that the need is still there and although we aren't working at quite the speed and quantity we were a year back when we were giving over £3000 of food supplies weekly people are still in need and crisis and we want to continue to help and support them wherever possible. Please can you help us to help them!
