Story

I will be joining the Oakes gap team in September for a year.  The Oakes is a Christian Holiday centre, which runs camps throughout the year for school groups during term time, and open camps during weekends. The Oakes Trust (a registered charity) provides accommodation, food and training for all its Gap team members. This costs the charity approximately £2400 per person per year. All Oakes staff members are unpaid volunteers, therefore by giving to The Oakes Gap Team support fund, you will be helping us to provide for our mission to reach young people with the gospel. During my year at the Oakes, I will also be running activities (such as a ropes course, mini mudder, rafts and archery), leading in wide games, maintaining the Oakes' grounds, cleaning, cooking, dorm leading and getting alongside the young people.

Therefore, to fundraise, I will be running the Farnham Pilgrim Trail Marathon on the 8th of September. This is my first marathon, therefore would love your support!



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.

Well done Ben - an excellent first marathon and I hope you enjoyed running with your Mum. You did better than me when I run with her in Edinburgh - I only stayed with her for the first 50 yards or so and then when she waited for me at the finish.
