The sponsored walk organised by William Willmott was a huge success and initial indications suggest a figure approaching £4000-£5000 may have been raised. Special thanks to all the hearty walkers who took to the event, with special praise to both Kelvin Thomas and Les Phillips who not only joined but contributed a massive amount to the monies raised. A full update will be provided once all the monies have been accounted for.
Oxford fan and Mirror journalist Greig Box Turnbull meanwhile was at the ground with Jeremy Charles to greet Les Phillips. Les and Jeremy then proceeded to sign 100 special edition photos of the pair as they sat in the Manor Ground's dressing room celebrating the club's route to success in the 1980's. With well over half of the photos being sold we expect a few to remain in the coming days. Should you wish to secure this fantastic memento then please contact Greig at firstname.lastname@example.org . We expect to see the profits and proceeds into the 12th Man fund over the next few weeks.
12th Man Badges continue to be snapped up week after week. At the weekend John Gould, Sean Wilde, Chris Davis and others sold a further 146 yellow badges and 142 white badges, adding a further £600+ to the fund. Special thanks to OxVox Committee Member Sean, who managed to personally sell 112 badges outside the South Stand and in The Priory. Current stocks are 542 yellow and 214 white, so should you wish to get a supply for Christmas then please email the 12th Man.
The next month or so will see further 12th Man activities. OxVox are running two 6-a-side 12th Man Competitions with the club entering teams into both tournaments. In addition, The Priory will be holding both a Race Night and a Christmas Party. Full details to follow on those events.
We still have another pre-Christmas 12th Man fund-raiser due to be launched and this will see the 12th Man brand hit Oxfordshire, watch this space over the next two weeks!!!!
