Oxfordshire's Virtual Challenge - John O'Groats to Land's End

Support NCCA side Oxfordshire in their virtual challenge 

With members of the Oxfordshire Cricket workforce being on flexi furlough, the workforce, staff, directors, players and volunteers of Oxfordshire Cricket will be voluntarily giving up some of their time to do a virtual challenge to walk, run or cycle the same distance as from John O’Groats to Land’s End during February to raise money for Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust and the Opening Up Cricket Charity. Our target is to raise £5,000
