As main sponsors of the Oxford United Ladies team, we occasionally enjoy a few perks around various games. A few months ago, we entered one of the club prize draws and, as a result, were given a corporate hospitality box for the Wycombe game. As you know we like to give a bit back, so we gave our tickets to local charity ICE. It gave the ICE team chance to take some of the young people they support on a good afternoon out, and as it turns out, a chance to win yet another draw.
Martin Bull, Director sent us a very kind email outlining their day.
“Thanks you very much for the tickets to Oxford United at the weekend, everyone really enjoyed it. We got there in plenty of time to enjoy the carvery dinner before the game, where we given a chance to enter a competition to guess the attendance at the stadium.
Jill got it spot on at 7100 and we won a signed away shirt that was presented after the game by the man of the match Danny Rose. The shirt will now be framed and put up in our café”.
We meet Martin, Jill and the team at ICE earlier this year when they won the Community and Charity award which we were sponsoring at the West Oxfordshire Business Awards. We have already agreed we will sponsor for the same award for 2014 and are really looking forward to meeting some of the other organisations who are doing such good work across the county.
