During the Covid-19 pandemic you helped me to raise over £2,500 for the vital charity Oasis Domestic Abuse Service.
It was a way for me to share the love of reading whilst we couldn’t hold our Bee’s Bookshare meet us and to support this charity at a time when it’s never been more needed. b
THANK YOU for helping me to #RaiseforOasis
The wonderful bookshare community helped to make this happen by gifting books for the fundraiser – thank you 🙏
This fundraiser was for this exceptionally important charity. During the Covid-19 pandemic, the risk of domestic abuse is heightened and victims are struggling to reach safety routes. On top of this, the charity has not been able to hold it’s usual fundraising events, losing vital income – at a time when they need it the most.
