Oasis Domestic Abuse Service Receives £500 Charitable Donation From Thanet Roadrunners 10 Mile Race

Oasis Domestic Abuse Service is the latest charity to receive a donation from Thanet Roadrunners Athletics Club.  £500 was raised from the proceeds of the Alan Green Memorial 10 Mile Race held in December.  A cheque was recently presented to Hazel Eddy, Fundraising Assistant of the charity by Phil Kinnill, Thane Roadrunners Race Director.

Hazel said, ‘Here at Oasis we are all so grateful for the generous donation by Thanet Road Runners. We are honoured that such a great group have chosen to support us with their run. The money raised will make a great difference to the services that we deliver in the Thanet community. Every week two women die as a result of domestic abuse in the UK. Thanet Road Runners have given vulnerable women and children a place to turn for help.‘

She added, ‘If you or your family are ever in immediate danger don’t be afraid to call the police on 999. Alternatively you can call an independent advisor on 07926842183 or visit www.domesticabuseservices.org.uk for services in your area.’

Phil Kinnill, Race Director of the race said, ‘it is an important pillar of the club that we put something back into the community. Oasis Domestic Abuse Service does such an amazing job and we are pleased to have gone some way in supporting them.’

Oasis Domestic Abuse Service is a registered charity providing temporary and safe refuge accommodation and 24 hour accessibility for families escaping domestic abuse. The charity provides practical and emotional support and information to those affected by domestic abuse in the community, youth mentoring and refuge services.

The service was founded in 1994 and still continued to deliver its work in Thanet and the surrounding areas today nearly 20 years later. The charity delivers several programmes to children and young people in the community, including its successful Love Shouldn’t Hurt campaign in local Thanet primary schools.

The charity has a proven track record of providing excellent support to those experiencing domestic abuse. Those using the charity’s services saw significant reduction in their risk levels. From 2012-13 its refuge supported over 50 women with 35 children, and its Community Team supported 358 adults and 198 children.
