  1. Celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee

    Over the years Oakhouse have celebrated events around the UK in all sorts of ways - most recently with beautiful mugs to celebrate the wedding of William & Kate.

Barnardo’s run over 800 UK projects that transform the lives of more than 190,000 children and young people every year and they need regular donations to fund this fantastic work.

The newspaper reports the findings of a survey carried out amongst the British public, which found that 8 out of 10 of us Brits rely on a cup of tea to get us through the day but that more than 50% of tea drinkers were over the age of 45. Apparently 3.5 billion cups of tea are drunk each year in the workplace too but at Oakhouse Foods we think there’s nothing better than a good cuppa so we won’t be giving ours up any time soon!
