Sshh! Tesco Staff silently raising funds for Oakley’s Outings

Sshh! Tesco Staff silently raising funds for Oakley’s Outings

Medway, May 26, 2016:  A Tesco’s Strood employee wanted to raise a smile on young Oakley Orange’s face and Oakley saw this as an opportunity to help raise awareness and funds for the project named after him, Oakley’s Outings.  Glad Kinzett, cashier, is known to be a “bit of a talker” thought it would be a challenge to stage a sponsored silence. It will be difficult to be silent when working on the tills so Tesco’s have raised the bar and through their Community Champion Oakley’s Outings had a stall at the store where customers could find out about the work the parent charity, Share A Star, do through Oakley’s Outings and its other projects. Glad manned the stall, quietly, from 8am to midday when other staff will took over. Share a Star trustee Lorraine Orange called in at the store to lend a hand and Tesco's mascot was there too.



As well as raising awareness of Oakleys Outings the event raised £183.

We would like to thank Glad and Tesco's Strood for supporting the day. The monies raised will help fund another outing for a severely ill child with their family.

Tombola Appeal

Two lovely ladies are doing a tombola to raise funds for Oakleys Outings in July.  We are asking for donations for the stall please. Tins, chocs smellies anything that would be suitable for a tombola stall please. 
Contact Lorraine if you are able to donate. Email
