And raise funds for Restore?

We have charity places available for people looking to run Oxford Half Marathon on 7th October 2018. All we ask in return is that you raise over £150 for Restore. We give advice on how to do this, taking into account  what suits you and how you wish to promote your run in order to raise as much money as you can. All you need to do is to e-mail and we will arrange for you to receive an email from the organisers registering you as a runner on behalf of Restore.

We also advise you on how best to fund-raise. It’s not as hard as you might think. On one of our recent charity bike rides, our 8 riders raised over £3,000, which is nearly £400 per rider. But if you raise less than that, fine…don’t worry. But we’d love to raise more…

Go for it…we know you want to!

The best comedy show in Oxford! Book to see the Oxford Imps on Tuesday 30th October! @ the jericho tavern oxford | England | United Kingdom

The likes of Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, and Rowan Atkinson, have forged comedy careers in Oxford. In their wake a comedy group is going from strength to strength.

The Oxford Imps made their debut at the Wheatsheaf pub in 2004 and they will be performing a special show for Restore at 7.30pm at The Jericho Tavern on Tuesday 30 October.

Every penny raised will go directly towards Restore. Advance tickets and student tickets are £4. All other tickets on the day will be £5. You can buy tickets here

Find out more by clicking the link to the Facebook event here and please do encourage your friends and family to buy a ticket!

The money we raise from the Comedy Night helps to fund mental health recovery, so if you can’t make it to the night, can you donate £5 by sending the text message REST02 £5 to the phone number 70070?!

Writer, singer and Restore patron, Emily Maguire, to perform poetry and songs at Restore on Saturday 10th November! @ Restore Garden Cafe
Nov 10 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Writer, singer and Restore patron, Emily Maguire, to perform poetry and songs at Restore on Saturday 10th November! @ Restore Garden Cafe | England | United Kingdom

SINGER, songwriter, composer, poet, multi-instrumentalist, and Restore patron Emily Maguire is coming to Manzil Way as part of an extensive UK tour, and tickets are available!
Emily’s heartfelt, thought-provoking lyrics, emotive voice, many albums, and spellbinding live performances have won her fans across the globe, none more so than here in Oxfordshire.
With a remarkable story of recovery to tell, Emily has been interviewed many times on Radio 2 and Radio 4 including ‘Midweek’ with Libby Purves. A breakdown at 16, diagnosed as acute clinical depression combined with a car crash that same year brought on a condition known as FMS (fibromyalgia pain syndrome), causing constant pain.

“I started writing songs and the illness suddenly became a complete blessing in disguise as I had all this time on my hands to write”, Emily says.
Emily can’t wait to be touring again and she’s looking forward to promoting her new poetry book ‘Meditation Mind’ and playing songs on acoustic guitar accompanied by her husband on double-bass. There will be a short Q&A at the end. Every penny goes directly to Restore.
Emily’s performance starts at 7.00pm at Restore on Manzil Way, Cowley Road, Oxford, and tickets (£11.25 including a booking fee) are available by clicking on

Winter warmer festival at Elder Stubbs allotments @ Elder Stubbs Allotments, Rymers Ln, Oxford OX4 3DY, United Kingdom
Dec 6 @ 5:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Moonrakers concert at Richard Benson Hall @ richard benson hall
Feb 9 @ 7:30 pm – 10:45 pm
Moonrakers concert at Richard Benson Hall @ richard benson hall | England | United Kingdom

Moonrakers is an Oxford-based group of four musicians, some from the classical and some from the folk tradition. The fact that the band “just OOZES quality” (Living Tradition) is down to the careful arrangements and selection of tunes and songs, presenting “exquisite music” (BBC). Now with five albums under their belt and described as “startlingly talented” (Oxford Times), Moonrakers provide “truly wonderful” (Wycombe Festival) informal evenings of musical excellence and humour.

The choice of material is largely from the Irish, Scottish, Welsh and English traditions, reflecting a love of traditional and contemporary tunes and songs ‘in the idiom’.

All proceeds from ticket sales are going to support Restore

Our fantastic promises include … two tickets for an England Six Nations rugby international, two tickets for the WOMAD music festival, two return rail tickets anywhere on the GWR network, a week in Tuscany and many more. Full details of the lots as at 19th February can be seen here . Take a look, there are some amazing  items to bid for. If you’re not able to come along to the auction, you can lodge a bid beforehand. Email with your bid.

Buy your ticket now! You’ve got to be in it to win it for some fantastic experiences and items. And tickets are limited.

Included in the ticket price will be canapés made by celebrity chef Sophie Grigson and a complementary glass of wine. Also the chance to mingle and grab a selfie with our guest auctioneer Jeremy Irons.

We’re looking forward to a brilliant night out. Restore is a fantastic cause. And we can guarantee you that you’ll have fun. You may even go home with a stellar auction lot.

Raise funds for Restore by riding your bike @ Oxford University Rugby Club
May 19 all-day




We had so much fun at this event in 2018.

Our 8 riders (we call them the ‘magnificent eight’) raised just over £3,000 which is equivalent to £375 per rider. This was a marvellous achievement, which we are determined to better in 2019.

Are you interested? You set off from the beautiful Oxfordshire University Rugby Club  on either the 25 mile, 50 or 80 mile routes around Oxfordshire. The routes are clearly signposted and there’s no pressure in terms of the pace that you’re required to ride at.

All we ask is that in return for free entry paid by us, you raise at least £250 in sponsorship from your friends and family. We give you advice and support with raising the funds and setting up your fundraising pages.

Please don’t hesitate. It’s a fun way to raise funds for us and a great way for you to get fit.

Give it a go! For more details, please contact or call 01865 455822
