What is OxJam? Oxjam began in 2006, with the aim of creating a network of music-loving people across the UK, all united by a shared goal – to raise money to fight poverty and suffering around the world. 9 years on we’re still going strong, with hundreds of incredible gigs taking place each October.
The great thing about Oxjam is the diversity of the events on offer – from our multi-venue Takeover events, to sponsored busks on top of mountains – we’ve seen it all. Over the years we’ve gained several high profile celebrity supporters, including Jarvis Cocker, Fatboy Slim, Damon Albarn, Hot Chip, 2manydjs and many more. But at its heart Oxjam is still a grassroots festival, with thousands of volunteers celebrating music in their local communities by organising their own gigs in support of Oxfam GB.
On Friday, officials of Yeadon Cricket Club took the squad of players to watch Yorkshire Vikings v Nottinghamshire Outlaws T20 game at Headingley which preceded the presentation evening. It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening with players,parents and club members enjoying the sunshine and a very entertaining game.
The Presentation of trophies was held at Yeadon Cricket Club and was very well attended. Small speeches from Coach/Manager Paul Machell and Cricket Chairman Duncan Sloane congratulated players, scorers, parents, coaches, and people who provided refreshments.

Damon & his digger, 600 metres of drain, 60 tons of hardcore….
That’s the delivery next Saturday at 7am. We desperately need some help in any shape or form to shift that amount of hardcore.
Food provided and more importantly (and this is probably the deal clincher for some of you), free ales during the Manchester derby game on the Sunday.
Many hands make light work as they say. We would really appreciate your help.
