The Foundation’s focus is to helpdisadvantaged children under the age of 16 and their families, particularly projects in areas where our main sponsor ‘Oakland International’ is an integral part of the local community (Redditch, Bardon, Corby, Worksop). We provide support based on the following themes:

Education: to ensure children get the best education, no matter their background.
Health and nutrition: to ensure children have an awareness of healthy food and lifestyle choices.
Sport: to ensure children have access to sport and activities irrespective of social background or physical ability.

Annually can only fund so many worthy causes which is why we focus our support on projects based in areas where our main sponsor Oakland International is an integral part of the local community, currently we can only consider projects in ‘Worcestershire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Nottinghamshire’.
