I am super excited to have received a donation of over £5000 from Your RAK. I’ve got to admit I was bought to tears when the cheque was handed to me, as i know the difference that this donation can make to many people in recovery, and I was blown away by the amount.
Your RAK is a charity shop based in High Street Burnham, it is run by an ex-service user, Nickie Stringer, and her family. Your RAK raises funds for Oasis and the One Recovery Bucks service, helping to support activities within the recovery network.
Nickie and her family work really hard in the charity shop, which is very much appreciated, anyone running any sort of business during the past few ‘covid’ years will have struggled, as have many of our service users. I shared with Nickie the recovery network projects that aren’t directly funded and she has chosen 3 projects to support:
- A monthly recovery meal and activities night in our Wycombe Recovery Cafe, planned for first the Friday of every month starting November 4th.
- A contribution to our project at the Positivity Sanctuary – supporting our #TransformationalTuesday health and wellbeing sessions, (restarting in spring)
- A contribution to the Oasis ArtBox sessions – Recovery in Art – sessions currently running in Chesham on a Tuesday and Saturday, and we will be starting sessions again very soon at our ArtBox studio in Desbox – Wycombe.
Thank you so much Nickie, it is support like this from people that enables us to provide a range of much needed recovery support options, which we know are appreciated by our service users.
