Oasis Academy Lister Park students unite as they come together to support their local community

A group of budding student leaders from Bradford are currently raising funds to help support their local community and make it an even more fantastic place to live.

Six Oasis Academy Lister Park teenagers have started a group called ‘Oasis Smiles’, and want to give back to the Bradford community.

Atyab, Student Leader at Oasis Academy Lister Park commented saying; “We believe that our local area is a fantastic place to live and with a little support we hope that more people will have a reason to smile... that's why we are 'Oasis Smiles'.”

The group have recently created a GoFundMe page which has already raised £300, they currently have a goal of reaching £500.

Donations no matter how big or small will enable Oasis Smiles to provide support packages for local people, including: food, toiletries and other items that will be useful during the continued difficult time of COVID.

Once the packages are created, they will then be delivered by a small team of volunteers to local community members. They aim to deliver these packages throughout the school holidays.

Jade Ibegbuna, Community Hub Leader at Oasis Academy Lister Park commented saying; “This is the first time that our Student Leaders are doing community outreach - they know how important it is to support the local community (especially during the pandemic) and are delighted to be leading on this social action project. Our Student Leaders are brilliant and a shining example of young people wanting to make a difference where they live.”
