Oxfordshire Hockey Association Donates £6,000 To Three Charities

During the Covid-19 pandemic, hockey clubs across the country struggled to play and complete their seasons. The pandemic hit the country and sport in a way we have never seen before.

Oxfordshire Hockey Association were one of the many who were affected. But, the hockey family came together and back in March 2020 Oxfordshire HA helped raise £6,000 for three charities, this would not have been possible if it wasn't for the kindness of the young players, parents and association organisers. 

The money was donated by these incredible people after Oxfordshire HA offered refunds for the incomplete season. The hockey family stepped up and asked Oxfordshire HA to keep the money and donate it instead. 

The charities received £2,000 each.
