The Oaklands Centre kits out its kitchen

The Oaklands Centre has received £500 from our Community Support Scheme to purchase new kitchen equipment. 

The centre based in Warsop is made up of a 20 bedroom complex. It provides a home and respite care for adults with learning difficulties. The Oaklands Complex cares for its residents and aims to make them as self-reliant, happy and independent as possible. All of which is supported through the outstanding care of the staff. 

The donated funds will allow staff to prepare more food much faster, enabling them to spend further quality time with the residents. 

Alison Collier, Centre Administrator at the Oaklands Centre, said ‘It’s wonderful that The Mansfield Building Society gives back to its local community. The money has gone towards new kitchen equipment which is much needed for the centre. Staff can now spend more time with the residents and get back into the kitchen and cook simple meals together. It means we can provide a further level of care, and help residents become more self-reliant. The donation will go a long way.’

Carole Dallison, Customer Service Manager at the Society, visited the centre during its Summer Fayre and said, ‘The facilities at the Oaklands Centre are fantastic and the residents are really engaged with the staff which is great to see. I can see how the new kitchen equipment will positively impact everyone here. It showed me how much our funding does to help our local community and I’m proud to be a part of it. 

Our Community Support Scheme funds local groups and organisations in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire and meets twice yearly in May and November to consider applications.
