The Knights Christmas Party!

December 4 2014   Ι   Author: Comments Off

Last night was the Knights of Oakham Christmas party!!!

It was our chance to say a big thank you to all the team for their hard work and dedication to our customers, whether it be on the shop floor, on the road delivering or behind the scenes.

It isn’t often that we get a chance to have all the team together… there is normally a team on the road delivering and installing so it was lovely to get into the Christmas mood together! We headed off to Peterborough Greyhounds and enjoyed a great 3 course meal (including Turkey of course!) and a few bets! Not too many sore heads this morning!

Bold and Blue Friday!

September 5 2014   Ι   Author: Comments Off

Today we are supporting the work of the fantastic local Charity ‘Hope Against Cancer’ on their Bold and Blue Friday!

We’ll all be wearing blue, eating blue cakes and we even have a dedicated window display showcasing all our blue products! Any donations would be very gratefully received.

Thank you to all the customers who have kindly donated. And a HUGE thank you to our invaluable team member, Sandra, who dressed our dedicated ‘Bold and Blue’ window display before heading into Leicester for her next stage of chemo. All the team at Knights of Oakham are with you all the way and you are a true inspiration to us all.

We’ll be continuing our support for Hope Against Cancer at the Bold and Blue BBQ at Baker’s Yard, Church Street, Oakham tonight. We have a few tickets left priced at £10 so if you would like to come please pop into the shop to buy a ticket.

Our Charity of the Year is…

July 23 2014   Ι   Author: Comments Off

We get a huge number of requests from Charities asking for support. Every single one is a worthwhile cause & we would support them all if we could.

However for reasons very close to all the team here at Knights of Oakham are very proud to be supporting Hope Against Cancer this year stating with supporting their ‘Bold and Blue Friday’  on 5th September.

The Hope Foundation was launched in 2002 to raise funds for research into the causes and treatment of cancer in Leicestershire and Rutland. It was founded by the late Allison Wilson CBE who discovered, after she was diagnosed with cancer in 1996, that the development of cancer care in Leicestershire and Rutland was hampered by lack of funding. Allison became aware during her own treatment that patients treated locally did not enjoy the proven advantages of being able to take part in clinical trials which were a feature of treatment in areas where there is strong financial support from cancer research charities. Allison’s vision, then, was to provide Leicestershire and Rutland with their own dedicated charity which would raise money in the two counties, for use in the two counties.

She therefore lent her support to the foundation of a new charity for Leicestershire and Rutland in the knowledge that this would lead to improved cancer care. She wanted to share her vision of the establishment of this area as a renowned cancer research centre with the reputation to attract the most able staff and provide the best available training for doctors and nurses in the field of cancer care.

Through the enormous generosity of the people of Leicestershire, Rutland and beyond, Hope Against cancer has to date raised over £3 million which has funded 31 research projects into many cancers including bladder, ovarian, prostate, melanoma, liver, bowel, leukaemia, colorectal and breast cancer together with nursing fellowships relating to patient care.

In May 2012 the Hope Against Cancer Clinical Trials Unit was opened at the Leicester Royal Infirmary, one of the first units outside of London. By supporting cancer research today we aim to develop effective treatments for the future.
