Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. My name is Theo Bentley and I will be volunteering at The Oakes from September until December 2019. We have been asked to raise approximately £800 during the autumn term, to cover our living expenses.

The Oakes is a Christian children’s centre. It holds holiday camps and school residentials throughout the year, for children aged 8 to 18. As well as the gospel being faithfully shared, the children take part in a range of fun activities.

I will be on a gap year team of around 10-15 people leading dorms and bible teaching as well as working in the kitchens and general housekeeping. If you would like to find out more, the website address is

If you felt you were able to provide some kind of financial support, in any way at all, then I would be incredibly grateful. 

 If you are a UK taxpayer, please confirm that you would like to reclaim Gift Aid on your donation. This will add 25p to every £1 you give. Thanks for visiting!

Oakes Trust (Sheffield), Gap Team Support

The Oakes is committed to communicate the Gospel of Christ to children and young people. The aim is to provide a holiday centre where 8-18 year olds can hear the Christian message, be encouraged in their faith and enjoy a great holiday. The Oakes can accommodate 60 young people plus leaders. The large Georgian house stands in 10 acres of historic gardens including a lake, walled garden, woods, and extensive lawns, yet lies within the city of Sheffield.
