Jake Spicer

 

 Toy Run

Every April Oxford UK Chapter hold a ride out to the Children’s Hospital at the John Radcliffe to take toys to the poorly children staying there. 

For many years now we have done this in memory of Jake Spicer, who sadly passed away in 2009.

Message regarding this year’s Toy Run, in light of the Covid-19 situation:

Hi Folks
 
With regret, we have taken the decision to cancel the Jake Spicer Toy Run, due to take place on April 19.
 
We need to act responsibly and unfortunately I don’t believe we could marshal such an event, while ensuring that current guidance on Social Distancing is met.
 
It is a shame that we have to do this, but I hope that people will agree it’s the right thing to do.
 
If possible, we will try and run the event later in the year. Without doubt the Toy Run is one of the most worthwhile things we do and we wouldn’t want the kids who benefit from it to miss out.
 
Finally, I’d like to say a big thank you to all of the road crew from the Oxford and Thames Valley Chapters who volunteered to marshal.
 
Stay safe
 
Stew
Head Road Captain – Oxford UK Chapter

2017 Pin

In 2017 a pin was designed and sold, and we raised enough money to buy a Playstation and some games for the children in the hospital.

 

2018 Pin

We had a new design of pin in 2018, and we raised enough money to buy not one but TWO ovens, so as the children can have cookery lessons.

2019 Pin

We still have this year’s pin available at the price of £5, please see Anne if you would like one.

2020 Pin

2020’s pin has now been produced and is available to buy from Anne Gray.
