PLEASE SUPPORT OUT OUTREACH WORK DURING THE PANDEMIC
In addition to our award-winning fairs, Great Northern Events quietly carries out outreach work with the Oasis Centre, a community centre in Gorton East Manchester, delivering free craft workshops, led by GNCCF exhibitors, for the disadvantaged and vulnerable people who use their services.
Sadly, the pandemic has forced the centre to close it's doors. As we are now unable to deliver our craft workshops, we are, instead, commissioning craft packs from our GNCCF makers, which will be delivered with food parcels.
We have made many friends amongst the Oasis community and many of them had very little before the pandemic. Our workshops enabled them to temporarily escape the stresses and chaos of their lives and enabled them to try new skills and make things they were proud of. Many live alone in temporary accommodation with few resources, money or family support to help alleviate the boredom of lockdown. Our craft packs go someway to brighten up their isolation.
Please support this initiative. Donate what you can here.
