Members of Wesley Memorial Church once again kindly baked scones and cakes, and hosted a party in the garden of one of the church families so that church and Phab members could eat and socialise. Unfortunately the weather was not as kind as last year, but the welcome was just as warm, and the cakes just as delicious.
Several of our members have fundraising pages at mydonate, which it sponsored by BT, so does not take any commission of your donation, and deals with Gift Aid etc. Donations via my link, above, or any of the following will all help.
We were the Hinksey Heights Golf Club Captains Charity in 2016, and were invited to their Captain’s Drive In. We were very happy to come back, and sell more tickets for their raffle, as well as sticks which their members could place on the course to show where they thought first drive of this year’s captains would reach.
We were very pleased to accept a cheque for the amount their members had raised on our behalf during the year, at events like the Captain’s Day.
After some rather mixed weather over the past month the sun shone on the Wesley Memorial Church annual garden party, with proceeds donated to Oxford Phab.
Members of the church, and of Oxford Phab swum and played games, and ate delicious cakes and scones, and drank many cups of tea and coffee. A beautiful summer day, and we are very grateful to our hosts, and to those who baked cakes, and helped with serving.
Once again we are at Cowley Road Carnival, as last years day was successful despite the blustery weather.
We arrived early to start setting up, in a slight drizzle.
Here we are ready for the public.
We have a monkey whose name is known only to a select few, and the public are invited to try to guess his (or her) name to win it for a very reasonable entry fee of 20p. Once again we are next to our friends from Oxford Spires Rotary.
The Mayor of Oxford came past, and later stopped by for a chat.
Many people dropped by to purchase home made sweets, guess the name of the monkey, or chat and find out more about what we do.Luckily the drizzle has stopped and we had better weather for most of the afternoon, until the Carnival closed at 5pm.
Shortly after we started to pack up the rain came on again, but we managed to get most things into shelter until we were able to fetch the minibus and load it to go home.
We will taking a group in our minibus, and a couple of cars, and members will be walking and helping on the checkpoint/reception area.
The club receives no funding except the money we raise ourselves, and our present priority is the expense of keeping our Minibus running so we can bring members to club on a Friday night and go on trips, like our recent holiday at Avon Tyrrell.
