OUR BIG SWIM
A huge thanks to all of you who took part in the Sponsored Swim on 6th July to raise funds to support people and communities in and near Leon.
Thanks to all the Swimmers - some of you had amazing stamina! Some swam 40 or 60 lengths and one family of 3 swam 284 lengths!!
Special thanks too to our Lord Mayor Colin Cook for opening the event and signing the Swim certificates and greeting the swimmers. Thanks too to Councillor John Tanner for making the announcements.
We shall be having an After-Swim event on Friday 21st September at 7 p.m. in the South Oxford Community Centre, Lake Street, Oxford. We will have some photo displays that will give a background to projects we have supported around Leon. There will also be a brief talk about the current crisis in Nicaragua.
There will be some light refreshments and we do hope as many of you as possible will be able to come.
We welcome new members. We have meetings 4-6 times a year to discuss our work and future activities. Our other main fund raising event is the Misa Campesina (Nicaraguan Folk Mass) held in Blackfriars, St Giles in March or April
Our Annual General Meeting is scheduled to be held in the Town Hall on Tuesday 16th October.
