Business community in Redditch invited to support charity ball

Redditch Editorial 14th May, 2024   0

A REDDITCH children’s charity will be hoping to raise its profile and help the work it does in the community when it hosts a charity ball on September 28.

The Oakland Foundation was launched in 2012 and was officially opened by Her Royal Highness, The Princess Royal.

The foundation’s target group is children under the age of 16 and their families who live in England and Wales.

The organisation, run by the family supply chain solutions provider Oaklands International, will be putting on an evening of music, fun and fundraising all to support a worthy cause.

The evening will include dinner, music, a silent auction and raffle, and lots more, with all proceeds raised used for a range of programmes and projects where Oakland International is an integral part of the community.

Peter Vaughan, a Trustee of the Oakland Foundation, said: “We aim to partner with more businesses and strengthen our existing connections to advance and expand the charity’s work throughout England and Wales and we do hope businesses will join us and have a great time.




“Together, we can make a real difference in the lives of so many children and families in need.”

All funds raised through business sponsorship and ticket sales will be used for grants to support programmes and targeted schemes in education, health and nutrition, and sport for children.


Peter added: “We are delighted to have secured our headline sponsors and we’re delighted so many businesses are planning to join us at the Ball and help raise awareness and essential funds for the charity which will then be used to support children and young people undertaking various programmes and activities in schools and the community.”

Redditch-based Oakland International is a supply chain specialist offering services to the retail, wholesale, discount and convenience markets.
