Champion Fund Raiser

Andrew, on the left, is a young fund raiser who stages the annual Play2Give football tournament . He is ably assisted by Maxine in the center.

Andrew was treated for a brain tumour and since then has become a champion fund raiser for the Oxford Children's Hospital. Each year he and friends also select a second good cause, and this year it was the Abingdon Town Amateur Boxing Club Gym Fund.

After the presentation to the hospital, Alison, on the right, another champion fund raiser, was there to receive the money on behalf of the boxing club.

One event missed on Saturday was a remarkable queue on Stert Street. The Mostly Books Blog has the details.
