London Marathon

The big day is fast aproaching! and we are stepping up the game in our fundraising efforts, bake sale taking place in Oakfield HQ in aid of Children with Cancer UK.

Team Oakfield have successfully secured charity places with Children with Cancer UK in the London Marathon 2019 (our first ever marathon!) and our aim is to raise £7,500 for this deserving charity.

Talor and Kelsey are running for Macmillan- Link: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/Team/LONDONMARATHONFIRSTTIMERS.

But we’ll all be running the course together on the 29th April!

Every day 12 families in the UK receive the devastating news that their child has cancer. We want to run the 26.2 mile race both to honour the bravery of the thousands of children in the face of the cruellest of illnesses and to support the vital research into the causes and treatment of cancer that Children with Cancer UK provide.

Training stepped up a gear in the new year with plenty of long and lonely runs. While the training is tough, it is such a fantastic opportunity to raise lots of money!! We’ll put ourselves through the pain and (seemingly never ending) training plan if you can support us with our fundraising goals (every penny seriously counts). We’ll keep you updated with our training and fundraising ideas as we look forward and prepare for the BIG DAY!

So please all rattle your pockets and spare any donations you can to help another child ring the end of treatment bell!

Our ultimate motivation is that if a child can go through multiple rounds of chemotherapy, then we can run a marathon.

Thank you for your donations, little or large, we really are hugely appreciative!!!

Joanne, India and Mark

Considerate Constructors

We are pleased to announce we are now part of the Considerate Constructors scheme.

The construction industry has a huge impact on all our lives, with most construction work taking place in sensitive locations. If all construction sites and companies presented an image of competent management, efficiency, awareness of environmental issues and above all neighbourliness, then they would become a positive advertisement, not just for themselves but for the industry as a whole.

The Code of Considerate Practice commits those sites, companies and suppliers registered with the Scheme to care about appearance, respect the community, protect the environment, secure everyone’s safety and value their workforce.

Leigh Wood

Great to see Leigh Wood & his new belt, today at the Oakfield Construction Office. As you can see, proud as punch! Congratulations Leigh – “in clinching the Commonweath featherweight title with a two-round demolition of Abraham Bonsu.”
