Want to save money on the cost of your heating oil? So do we!
CCB manages an oil club to provide a way to save money on fuel costs for individuals, community buildings or businesses. The CCB Oil Club takes on the organisation of bulk buying fuel oil and the negotiation of the best price, reducing the cost for members and the time spent on sourcing oil.
By bringing communities throughout Berkshire together and making the most of collective purchasing power, this scheme can make significant savings and pass them directly to you. The CCB Oil Club additionally benefits the environment by cutting down the number of tanker journeys made. By planning deliveries to minimise the use of tankers – especially in rural areas, the CCB Oil Club brings oil to many addresses in the same area at the same time.
All you need to do to take advantage of the scheme is to pay an annual membership fee, from as little as £24, which will cover as many orders as you need during the year. The membership charge goes towards covering the administrative costs of running the projects. Any surplus from the CCB Oil Club will go directly towards supporting CCB’s charitable work.
CCB own the oil club but all communications and the administration are conducted by Oil Fuel Poverty Solutions (OFPS). OFPS was created to work with Rural Community Councils like CCB and other charities to manage, support and create buying groups and to raise issues experienced by rural oil users.
How does it work?
Once OFPS have processed your membership form and you have paid your membership fee, you will be sent an online (if you have e-mail) or paper order form. There is a minimum order requirement of 500 litres. Orders can be placed through a local co-ordinator (if there is one in your area) or directly to OFPS. Contact details: OFPS, 5 Courtlands Road,Shipton-under-Wychwood, Oxon, OX7 6DF. T: 01993 225011. E: email@example.com To download 2017 deadlines please click here.
Once your order is received, you can sit back and relax as our negotiators organise the best price from a range of suppliers. You will then be notified of the pence per litre price by either your local co-ordinator (if you have one) or OFPS.
Deliveries are usually made within three weeks of the order deadline. Always ensure you have three to four weeks of oil in your oil tank when ordering to avoid risk of running out. You pay the supplier directly.
12 month membership costs:
Domestic membership - £24.00
Community buildings - £36.00

What’s the snag?
There isn’t one! CCB is a long established and well respected Berkshire based charity. Our aim is to help make oil prices more affordable for Berkshire residents whose fuel costs are high simply because they use oil-fired central heating.
The prices the Oil Club has achieved for the last 12 months are outlined below, there are orders placed every month apart from December. All prices are exclusive of 5% VAT.
