It is with great sadness that we recently learned of the passing of Sir Gerald Kaufman, our local M.P. and a great friend of the Oasis Centre.
From our humble beginnings back in the early 2000s, Sir Gerald Kaufman understood what the Oasis Centre was all about and he actively supported our endeavours.
Sir Gerald was fully aware of the derpivation that was crippling his Manchester Gorton constituency and he worked hard to support the people who had put their trust in him.
Sir Gerald was an avid supporter of our charity who championed our cause and who was known on several occasions to financially support the work.
Whenever I needed government support or a trusted advocate for our cause, Sir Gerald was quick to help. Sir Gerald spoke on our behalf numerous times over 16 years in service. He was also known to speak on our behalf in parliament! We are shocked and saddened by our loss. Our sympathy and love go to his family and friends.
