Friends of WOCA (FoWOCA) was established as a stand-alone charity to provide much needed financial support to Citizens Advice West Oxfordshire. They fundraise for Citizens Advice West Oxfordshire so our charity can purchase IT equipment, office furniture and costs of updating technology. 

‘The Friends’ fulfil their aim through an exciting fundraising programme of social and sponsored events that are open to the public as well as to people already involved in Citizens Advice.  They are also building links with local businesses and with community leaders to engage them with the cause.

2023 events coming up.

Pop-up clothes shop & cafe on Saturday April 29th raised £810

The Friends are organised a café and a ‘Pop up Shop’ with ladies clothes, shoes, bags and jewellery at the Methodist Church Witney. They were so grateful for the help from many staff and volunteers- including CEO and Office manager! The local charity shops also grateful for the contributions after the event – win win all round!

Our aims were to:

  • give pre-loved clothes and accessories a new home and a new lease of life
  • everyone involved to have a fun day
  • and over and above everything else to raise funds to enable us to support the work of Citizens Advice West Oxfordshire.
