A place to connect, read, learn and play



Charlbury Community Centre is organising volunteers and staff to deliver items from local shops as needed. If you, or someone you know, is self-isolating and needs food or other items, please contact us on 01608 811878, between 10am and 1pm.   Equally, anyone who would like to volunteer to help, please call the centre or email Daniela Jenkins at info@charlburycommunitycentre.org.uk. Whatever help you need, just ask and we will do our best.

We can keep a tab for people who need the service and settle later. Items will be left outside your door, together with a receipt, so there is no contact.

For more information please see our  page: self-isolation help      To see information about help from us and other organisations in Charlbury, look at this flyer.

For those of you who purchased local tickets & vehicle passes through the Charlbury Community Centre please read on for important information on next steps.

Everyone will have the option to either be issued with a refund or hold their ticket for 2021.

In order to do this you will need to head to the Community Centre  to fill out a form. This is the form you will need to fill out (you can print it off and fill out in advance if you prefer). Please bring it on Saturday mornings 9am-12.30pm only.  You will need to bring:

· All of your physical tickets with “VOID” written across them and

· Verification of your bank details so the Community Centre can confirm the form is correct (either bank card displaying sort code & account number or bank statement)

The forms will be sent off in batches to Wilderness HQ. If you have opted for a refund this will be processed within 14 days of receiving it. If you have opted to hold on to your tickets for the following years your information and ticket details will be held securely and you will be emailed closer to the event to inform you on how to redeem your tickets for the following year.



We rely on fundraising, grants and donations for about 20% of the running costs of the Community Centre. Regular donations are especially valuable, so we have set up a “Friends of Charlbury Community Centre” scheme. Regular donors have their names appear on the display screen in the lobby, so it is good for those who missed out on the “Buy a Brick” scheme, or for people who are generous enough to want to help on a regular basis. For more details or to join please download this form.


Amazon Smile logoIf you make purchases from Amazon (bearing in mind that buying local is better of course!), we’d be really grateful if you could do it through Amazon Smile. If you do so the Thomas Gifford Trust will receive 0.5% of  the purchase value.  You will need to select Thomas Gifford Trust when you choose the above link or click on this Amazon Smile logo. Thank you!
