Partnering with St Helena Hospice

In the spirit of spreading joy and kindness during the holiday season, Oakheart & St Helena have joined hands to make this Christmas extra special for the community. We are encouraging our clients who are planning their move to consider donating their preloved items and furniture to St Helena Hospice. These items are then distributed to one of the many St Helena shops to be sold to the public, saving the items from going to landfill or recycling centres whilst raising funds for the important work St Helena carry out.
St Helena Hospice has expressed their thanks to Oakheart for supporting St Helena this Christmas and they are thankful for all donations to their charity shops.
