Through the Looking Glass -30 Years Celebration

5 June - UPDATE - re scheduled for 2021

Oaklea’s Celebration Event has been postponed due to the current pandemic. But we are pleased to confirm that our celebration event will take place at the North Lakes Hotel, Penrith, Cumbria, CA11 8QT on Saturday 26th June 2021 from 7pm. We hope that you will still be able to join us to celebrate our 30 years anniversary. We will contact you in the autumn to make payment arrangements if you haven’t already purchased your ticket.

16 March -PLEASE NOTE -the event has been put on hold for now due to the Corona Virus outbreak.

Oaklea Director, Sue Green: It is with a heavy heart that we have pulled the event for now and will reschedule the 30-year celebration. We are concerned that guests, customers, stakeholders and employees will be reluctant to commit to attend an event that may coincide with the height of the covid 19 outbreak. Sad news- but unavoidable in the circumstances. We will let everyone know a new date once the immediate risk and preconceptions of the pandemic has subsided.”

The Oaklea Trust ..celebrates 30 years -Join us as we step “Through the Looking Glass”

In 2020 The Oaklea Trust charity reaches a major milestone – we’re 30 years old. It’s something really worth celebrating and we’d love you to join us. We will be holding a fundraising event to mark the occasion. The evening’s theme is inspired by Alice in Wonderland as we take you ‘through the looking glass’ and share with you our journey over 3 momentous decades.

The evening includes pre dinner drinks, a sumptuous meal, raffle prizes and auction, music and entertainment.

Oaklea has continued to respond to the changing needs of individuals and communities during this time. That’s why we have been inspired by Lewis Carroll – “every adventure has a first step.”

We would love you to join us: customers, learners, colleagues and suppliers celebrating together.
