After taking it upon themselves to 'Be More Marley', Oxford Hawkes HC raised £7,000 for two charities in loving memory of Marley Oakes.
Marley unfortunately passed away aged just 10 months on 7 August 2019 and exactly two years later the club hosted a charity game that saw more than 200 people attend.
Alongside the mixed game, there were a whole host of activities taking place throughout the day in order to raise funds for The Maple Tree and Teddy's Wish. This included face painting and mini matches, while a special stall selling 'bemoremarley' socks and 'Marley's Stars' bracelets was also set up.

The charities the money raised will be split between are:
