In May 2017, thanks to the generosity of Oxford Round Table, OFB took delivery of a shiny new Transit van to join their fleet of delivery vehicles.
Christian Petersen, a Trustee of Oxford Round Table, said “We have known for some time about the great work being done by OFB within the local community, and the huge importance of reliable delivery vans to their operation. When we decided to offer them support it soon became clear that using £12,000 to fund a new vehicle would have an immediate and major practical impact on their operations. We are delighted to help this fantastic local charity using proceeds raised from our Annual South Park Fireworks Display and we look forward to seeing it put to use on the streets of Oxford”.
OFB’s Facilities Coordinator David Kay was more than happy to get hold of the keys. “We are truly grateful for this donation as it allows us to retire our oldest van, and replace it with something bigger and more reliable, enabling us to deliver even more food to the local charities that need it”.
As well as an article in the Oxford Mail on 1st June, That’s Oxford TV also featured this story in one of their broadcasts which can be viewed on YouTube.
