We were so touched by the overwhelming kindness shown by Oxford United Official and Sunderland AFC fans and staff on Saturday 9th February. They donated £1,500 and half a ton of food. All made possible by the awesome OUFC management team and OXVOX – Oxford United’s Independent Supporters’ Trust.
From the Oxford Mail: “OXFORD United fans have been praised for their generosity after a food bank collection was hailed as a big success. Supporters descended on the game with Sunderland at the weekend clutching tins and dried goods to donate to those in need. Organisers said a ‘huge’ amount of food had been donated, breaking expectations.
More than £1,000 was also raised in cash to support the work of the charity which provides food to 80 groups and organisations. Organisers OxVox thanked the club’s ‘wonderful supporters’ for embracing the initiative.”
