Earlier this month, we were pleased to have Lauren from our chosen charity this year, Helen & Douglas House, come and talk to us about the charity and the amazing work they do.
Lauren gave us a history of the charity and told us more about the work they are involved in currently, such as their 2016 Appeal to raise awareness of the charity across Oxfordshire. They also work closely with hospitals where patients are involved in car accidents where they suffer from life-shortening conditions and the hospital can’t accommodate them for a long period of time.
We have also been invited to look around the hospice to better understand about the work they do and see all the amazing equipment they use to cater for each of their patients, such as the water-bed mattress for the comfort of guests and a sensory room.
We are really looking forward to working with them!
On Saturday 7th May, we took part in a 5k paint dye obstacle course called Color Obstacle Rush at Windsor Racecourse to raise money for our chosen charity this year, Oxfordshire Mind. We had such a great time and our club’s Rotary Liaison Officer, Richie, put together a video of the event.

Thank you to everyone who attended our Scavenger Hunt on Saturday 9th April in Oxford city centre. It turned out to be such a wonderful event with ten teams taking part and as a result, we raised £100 for our charity, Oxfordshire Mind.
We chose to pack for a young girl, boy 10-14 and boy 5-9. Tash, our Publicity Officer, helps out at the Operation Christmas Child Warehouse so was able to advise on good gifts to buy. Continue reading →
At the end of September Oxford Rotaract decided to try out a new venue for their club social. They went to the board game cafe called Thirsty Meeple. This Oxford-based cafe is the home to hundreds of different board and card games, which you can hire out and play as you have a nice cup of tea and cake.
