Charity award given to Oxford Mail

July 15, 2018 by  

The Oxford Mail has been recognised for its record of charitable activity.

The company secured the award for backing the children’s hospital within the city. Letterheads from Oxford can be used to mark the achievements of businesses in a wide range of economic sectors. Over the years, the Oxford Mail has raised in excess of £1 million via runs near Blenheim Palace. The events at the palace have become an annual affair since 2003.

Sarah Vaccari works at Oxford Hospitals Charity that nominated the news organisation for its award. She told the Oxford Mail:

“It is safe to say the partnership we have with the Oxford Mail is one-of-a-kind. We are so grateful for all they do and think they are incredibly deserving of this award.”

The Oxford Children’s Hospital has gained a lot from donations. Without the role played by charity, the hospital might never have been built in the first place. It was completed back in 2007 and has since acquired toys, play areas and medical equipment with the assistance of the funds.

The Local Business Charity Awards did not only praise the Oxford Mail. A variety of individuals and enterprises obtained the recognition that their charitable efforts merited. FarmAbility nominated a local farm that does its bit to ensure that people with autism or a learning disability have a chance of getting work.
