New roof for Team Oasis Activity Centre with IKO’s ‘Fix That Hut’

Published: 19 April 2017 - Rachel Tucker

The Team Oasis ‘Happy Days’ Activity Centre in Toxteth, Liverpool, is the latest group to benefit from IKO’s Fix That Hut scheme.

A scheme that has been running since 2006 and has helped multiple run-down local buildings that are at the heart of the community. IKO donated primer, underlay, cap sheets and IKOslate which volunteer roofers used to repair what has been described as a "very run down roof".

 

Team Oasis was founded in 2003 to offer children and young people, the chance to escape the negative influences around them, and enjoy a variety of exciting activities and projects, including dance, drama, singing, music, sports, holidays, youth groups and after school clubs. Toxteth has the highest rate of child poverty in the UK and the worst statistics for crime and all its associated issues, so the centre is a lifeline for young people experiencing great social and economic disadvantage. It aims to promote understanding and remove barriers to children of all abilities growing together.

 

Team Oasis vigorously strives to open up and promote alternative positive pathways away from the sinister temptations of crime. IKO’s new roof was the latest project in the on-going renovation of what was, when Team Oasis moved in, a very dilapidated building.
