Supporting the Oasis Project in The Gambia

Home » The Difference » Charity Partner: Walk to The Gambia

HR Solutions and Crispin Rhodes actively support charities, both locally and nationally, either through direct sponsorship or by organising major fundraising events. So far we’ve raised over £120,000 for charities and good causes.

We’re proud to support the fantastic work of the Oasis Project in the Gambia to help raise funds for the Starlight School in Bakau. This is a project that’s very dear to our hearts and one we’ve seen make a real difference to hundreds of children over the past few years.  There is a need to expand the Starlight School, to enable them to take in more children and our goal is therefore to raise £30,000 to build, furnish, equip and staff two new classrooms.  To achieve this, our fundraising ‘Walk to The Gambia’ will see our team walking the distance of a 3,689 mile round trip, that’s an incredible 7,378 miles in total and approximately 76 Days of walking between us all!

Our goal is to raise £30,000 to build, equip and staff two new classrooms at the Starlight School in The Gambia.  Watch the webinar recording, to hear our HR Services Director, Angela Rhodes tell you all about this great cause.

Crispin Rhodes have provided an excellent service, not only in assisting in the recruitment of new staff by providing the necessary employment contracts, but also supporting us when we had to make a redundancy. They held our hand throughout the whole process offering support as and when necessary.

I always find them helpful and available at the end of the phone for any adhoc queries. Crispin Rhodes have certainly taken the stress out of HR management, which has enabled us to focus on running our business and looking after our clients. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services.
