6 December 2015 - To get in the festive spirit ahead of the OXIST Christmas Party many of us got our Christmas jumpers out in aid of the ITV Text Santa Appeal.

As well as being a lot of fun the event raised £160, thanks in large part to the dedicated fundraising team (pictured left) as well as all those who contributed and organised the event.

Thank you to all those who contributed their time and effort and we look forward to seeing lots of you at the Christmas party.
