Oasis Minibus Appeal

In 2018 the Benevolent Trust appealed for £27,000 to purchase a customised all-ability minibus as part of its Carmen500 proactive transport cause fund raising policy.

Carmen quickly responded, the Trust set aside funds, and other benefactors were encouraged by the Carmen’s Appeal. £30,000 was raised towards £38,000 costs.

Carmen funds raised were presented to Oasis at the 2019 Charity Lunch.  The minibus was ordered and, at the 2019 Cart Marking, the keys were handed over.

That year the minibus went into service, helping those whom Oasis helps to recover their lives from substance abuse.

The generosity of Carmen has once again helped those in need.
