Friends and Associates of Little Oaks

We would like to acknowledge KT’s Photography with our setting photographs and our event photos.

We have compiled a selection of links to some companies or organisations we have worked with and recommend, as well as sources of useful, relevant information.


Raise money for Little Oaks by doing your shopping online.
Simply shop directly with each retailer as you would normally, using the links from the fundraising site first.
Each purchase you make will generate a cash back donation to Little Oaks.

How to do it…

Go to and register “Little Oaks Brackley” to your email address (ensure you include Brackley otherwise another Little Oaks will benefit).
Whenever you shop online – follow the easy fundraising link to the retailer you require. The retailer will make a cash back donation to Little Oaks based on a percentage of the amount you spend – up to 15%. It is free and easy to use and will benefit Little Oaks whenever you shop online throughout the year.

Do not forget you can do your weekly online grocery shopping too!

Animal workshop

Here at the Mobile Mini Zoo, we bring the animals to you!

At our home, we have over 100 animals that we care for on a daily basis. Almost ALL of these animals have been neglected or abused and have been rescued, or given to us to be cared for correctly.

These animals (when they are fully recovered) join us on our shows, and it is at these shows where we aim to educate both young and old alike with these wonderful little creatures.
