Guests talk across the table at an OCF event at Broughton Castle
EVENTS

At OCF, we hold a small number of our own events aimed at our supporters and corporate partners. However, the team can regularly be found out and about attending key events in the charitable sector locally, as well as connecting with businesses and other influencers as speakers, participants or stallholders. Please do come and find us at one of the following events, where we will be present.

We also occasionally hold small, select get-togethers for our valued supporters, generously hosted by our patrons and trustees.
