Let's make a difference together!

August 23rd 2023
Join Jo Stevens, Oxford Innovation Space’s Managing Director, as well as a Board member for the British Heart Foundation, on the Ullswater Way 20-mile walk, to raise money for The British Heart Foundation on the 23rd of September.
The walk is around Ullswater lake, starting and ending at Pooley Bridge. It is a fairly low-level, easy to walk route, making it ideal for all ages and abilities. The cost of signing up is £25, which goes to the British Heart Foundation.
Once you sign up you will be sent an information pack with instructions on how to set up your Just Giving page and a run through of the day. If you are interested in being involved or want to find out more, please contact Jo Stevens at and reserve your space!

Down Syndrome Awareness Day

AOB held a cake sale arranged by Natalie, a Bric by Bric colleague of Saffer Cooper…….
All donations were for Down Syndrome Awareness Day. This is officially celebrated on 21st March each year, the date is significant as people with Down Syndrome have 3 copies of chromosome 21- hence 21/3. The day is marked with people wearing odd socks to celebrate individuals who have Down Syndrome and inclusivity (socks were chosen as chromosomes are shaped similarly to socks)
More information about Down Syndrome can be found here:
