Hi! My name is Charlotte and I will be joining the Oakes GAP team in September. Please would you consider giving towards The Oakes GAP Team Support Fund. The Oakes Trust (a registered charity) provides accommodation, food and training for all its GAP team members. This costs the charity approx. £2400 per person per year. All Oakes staff members are unpaid volunteers. 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. As part of GAP team, as well as cooking and cleaning, I will dorm lead children visiting the Oakes, taking part in outdoor activities and Bible studies with them but most importantly, ensuring that they're having lots of fun! It's possible I will be the first person they have ever been able to speak to about Jesus. As part of this fundraising exercise, between now and 13th September, I will run, swim and cycle 60km, the distance between my house and The Oakes! Every donation will spur me on! 

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.
