Our Outings

Our Outings

We will give you details and reports of the Outings we have planned and that have already taken place together with news of organisations that have assisted by donating events or special discounts for our Stars. We aim to try and help these children smile, to forget about hospitals, or doctors or nurses. This day is their day to spend with their families doing what makes them happy.

Lion King

Lion King 3

November 2017

Our latest Outing was for our Robyn Star. She and her sister chose their Outing together and decided to go and see the theatre production of Lion King in London at the Lyceum Theatre.

Their Mum reported "we had our outing at the Lion King and it was amazing! The girls were captivated from start to finish, it was truly magical. It was a welcome boost for them, so nice to see such big smile on their faces. Buster loved it too"

We are so glad they enjoyed the fantastic show and are sure it has provided them with some lovely memories. Here are some photos of the day.....

Paultons Park - Come Rain and Shine

Paultons Park - Come Rain and Shine

August 2017

Paultons Park in Southampton was the choice of our River Star for his Outing. We put him and his family up at accommodation close to the Park and a 2 day pass. A good job as Day 1 was unseasonably wet and the family could only spend a few hours there. Two days later and the sun was shining!

River Star's mum wrote to us and said " It's been the best. Thank you so much for all the laughter and smiles." This is what Oakley's Outings are all about, smiles and laughter and a chance for the whole family to have fun together. 


Colchester Zoo

June 2017

Our Dylan Star went to see the animals at Colchester Zoo with a keeper experience with his family. He fed the meerkats and the giraffes and visited with Freddie the baby hippo. He especially liked Freddie the hippo.


Chessington World of Adventures

Summer 2016

This was our biggest adventure yet! Over a few weekend thirteen of our Stars and their families were treated to a luxury weekend away at Chessington World of Adventures to have fun at both the park for the zoo and park for the rides.
It was packed with different things for the families to do, including feeding sea lions and other wonderful memory making.
We are so grateful to the Friends of Shelby Newstead who generously funded five of our Stars to go.

Wicked Outing 14 February 2015


Our Katie Star went to see the London show Wicked at the Apollo Theatre, Victoria.

When Dorothy famously triumphed over the Wicked Witch, we only ever heard one side of the story. Gregory Maguire's acclaimed 1995 novel, 'Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West', re-imagined the Land of Oz, creating a parallel universe to the familiar story written by L. Frank Baum and first published as 'The Wonderful Wizard of Oz' in 1900.

Wicked tells the incredible untold story of an unlikely but profound friendship between two girls who first meet as sorcery students at Shiz University: the blonde and very popular Glinda and a misunderstood green girl named Elphaba.

Oakley's Outings paid for our Katie Star and her family to travel by train and for tickets to this spectacular show. Here are some photos of the day...
